Shabby Vintage Box by GDT Maggie White

Good morning, Maggie here today to share my first guest design team project for Shabby Is Chic Boutique with you.
I am excited to share it with you, so let's get started!

I papered and painted my box in a lovely vintage theme and then I glued the stretched lace from SCB to the bottom and both sides of the box. Creating these boxes are great for using for craft room storage!
I then added some of the beautiful squared pearl trim, also from SCB over top of the lace to add dimension.  Next, I added the tiny pink daisy trim on the lower lip of the lid as well as an applique from my stash and a gorgeous bling piece from SCB to finish it off.

For the top of the box, I added more of the tiny daisy trim around the edges of the entire top.  I cut individual rhinestones from the cup chain and added them in the middle of each of the flowers. 

On the top left corner I added flowers from my stash, the butterfly applique and pearl piece from SCB.  On the butterfly I added another tiny flower and two small pieces of the rhinestone cup chain.
  The pearl piece, key and cameo are also pieces from SCB.

Finally, for the back and sides of the box I glued some of the beautiful stretched lace to the top and bottom of the box and then added more of the square pearl trim over the lace.
This was a very fun project to do, and I hope you will give it a try!
