Message in a Bottle and Romantic Box by DT Member Suzie Crafter

Good morning friends Suzie here today to share with you my next project for Shabby is Chic Boutique.

I've altered a blue box that I had from perfume lining it with muslin on the outside, and lining the inside of the top with SBC's blue lace trim, and ruffling the outside giving the lace a flimsy yet romantic kind of look using SBC's Embroidered Flower Lace Tulle in cream, lining the top outside of the box with White Flat Back Pearl Trim from the shop.
The Glass Tubes were from Michaels. I've never altered those before so I thought these would make great "messages in a bottle presents"! I've altered the glass tubes with some vintage lace from my stash, adding a dangling cream colored tassel to two of them then made one tassel from the White Fringe Trim, Luxury Lace Pearl Beaded Trim and the Rhinestone Cup-Chain Trim all from SBC's store giving the messages in a bottle just a romantic feel to them!
I've also added some pearl strand, handmade seam binding bows in cameo beige that were crinkled, a wired ribbon in gold, a few handmade pretty pearl and crystal stick pins and a few mulberry paper flowers to give it a romantic flair! Lastly, I crinkled some paper then etched it with Vintage Photo ink by Ranger, and wrote a love note in there for my husband. These are fun and great little projects to make using products from Shabby is Chic Boutique. 
I hope that you've enjoyed seeing this project as much as I've enjoyed making them. If you'd like to see them in full detail, there will be a YouTube video at my 'suziecrafter10' channel.
