SHARING PINK GIFT BOX ART PIECE
I have a passion for collecting boxes of all types including trinket boxes, hat boxes, cigar boxes, stacked boxes, etc. I also love to decorate some of them, as is the box I am sharing with you today. I selected a 7" square chipboard box, by 4.5 inches high. The box itself is covered with beautiful flowers in shades of pink. It is one of a set of 3 stacked boxes. I have embellished the box by creating a new top using Bazzill cardstock in two shades of pink. I selected another white cardstock in white and covered it with a delicately patterned Basic Grey paper in white and pink tones. Over a portion of this I have added a soft pink silk lace. I have created an image to tuck under a portion of this lace using an image of Lena Cavalieri cut into a scalloped shape with Nestabilities, and have selected another piece of Basic Grey patterned paper to die cut a frame for the Cavalieri image. Further embellishing includes a ribbon border for the base to which I have added a row of sequins. I have added pink pearls to the top corner; painted a chipboard flourish in gold to add along with a lovely pink fabric flower that has a white pearl center. To the outer edges of the box top I have added picot edged white satin ribbon topped with an organza ribbon that is patterned with pink and white polka dots. I use my box for storing silk flowers. What types of items would you chose to put in this type of box?
