Today I want to show you a memory box that I made up and embellished to create this cute shabby fairy trinket box.
The box measures 17cm x 15cm and comes to you in 6 pieces that slot together so easily even I managed to do it :)
I first covered the assembled box with a coat of acrylic in the colour Manilla. Then covered the top and bottom, also the sides with designer paper from Tim Holtz (yum). In our Dt Team kit we were sent several different fairies and I chose to use this cute one....The chip board pieces I painted with pink acrylic and then heat embossed them with some irridecsent embossing powder. I also adhered some little seed beads and some hot fix crystals from Retailgirl
Above you can also see I used a metal fillagree and did the same thing I did with the chip board.
As you may have noticed from previous projects you would have clicked on I am obsessed with lace and crochet lace so it was only natural for me to include some of this goodness on this trinket box. The trick for me is to know when to stop. Here is a look at the side where I added some lacy yumminess and some of my handcrafted flowers.

Be back soon with another creation and a vid of me making this Fairy Box.
Bye for now Tasha xx
