Are you like me? Do you melt at the sight of frilly, shabby pink ribbons, lacy bits, and little odds and ends? I love scraps of all sorts and I collect them avidly. Every once in a while, accompanied by a steamy cup of tea, I surround myself with all my scraps scattered about on the floor...And after a good hour or so of sorting, organizing and making itsy bitsy piles, I am usually inspired to create something out of all the little treasures.
That is how this little creation came about :)
I just couldn't help myself. And I couldn't throw all these pretty little bits away, after they made it into the little misfit pile :)
I used several scraps of Maja papers: Send a Postcard - Vintage Winter collection, 1933 - Vintage Summer Basics collection, and 5th of March - Vintage Spring Basics collection.
To keep the little box closed and add a bit more frilly fun, I tied two lace bows and glued them to a sparkly pin, decorated with buttons and rhinestones.
For the front of the box, I used Melissa Frances stickers - the girl alpha card and the polka dot oval, Webster's Pages sparkler, string pearls, liquid pearls, and a soft blue button.
I am adding this little box to the Shoppe. It's a perfect size for a gift card holder, or other precious little gifts. I imagine it filled with crafty bits, beads, and pretty, sparkly buttons. Maybe some die-cuts, or patches of fabric and paper for a crafty friend...I have a feeling that whatever is tucked inside this teensy box will surely bring out some smiles :)
