Completed Altered White Stationery Box

Box top and sides feature border and ruffle lace in ecru and brown tones.
White box top replaced with patterned cardstock. Gold medallion is German Scrap.

Paper frame from Anna Griffon enhances the little girl image from Paper Whimsey.

Gorgeous chiffon pumpkin-toned flowers with pearl centers.

Love the satin edging on this organza ribbon bow...

The Stationery Box was a flat white give it extra height so I could add a gathered lace ruffle, I added these metal corner legs.
