I made this trinket box – a very feminine one – for a little princess. I have used MDF box and decorated it with pink pattern papers, decoupaged it and gave final finish with lace, pearls and handmade paper flowers. Let me show you how it turned out.
We crafters buy so many embellishments and they are sooooo costly. Stick pins are one of them. I thought why not make some myself and I came up with some matching stick pins for my projects. See what I made with some beads and wire
I had made this tissue box looooong time back and the technique I had used was “decoupage”. I kept in my car for so many years and the sunlight faded the red colour of hearts. Heart turned from red to pink to cream to white in colour. It was time to revamp my tissue box. Since it’s made up of MDF, I could use it again. See what I came up with
This is what happened to my tissue box due to long exposure to sunlight
Looking at the results, now I don’t want to keep this in my car (will be heart broken it this gets discoloured )
It was Cub’s birthday a few days back. I was skeptical to hold another huge party with some 20 pre-teen girls running here n there. Thankfully Cub agreed to invite a few selected friends and so I too could make some special invites for them.
Have a look, from inception to final product. Hope girls liked it.
