Dream butterfly jewelry box


My darling hubby found this paper mache jewelry box at Hobby Lobby for 4 bucks. Awesome huh. So I painted it white, then mixed white, blush pink, and tan to make a sort of well to be honest flesh color lol. I just wanted a really neutral background to decorate on. I decoupaged this gorgeous paper that I just won, its from Italy and so pretty. The tag also. The small dream tag is from K & Company, as is the butterfly. I added flowers from my stash, put some bling on some of them, stuck in some swirls of wired ribbon, added a big pink ribbon and some stick pins made by my friend Linda. I put rock candy  crackle on the papers, and then added some distress inks, wild honey and the new pink summer color, picked raspberry. This is for my sweet niece Skylar.

Tuesday Alchemy-very vintage
Paper Crafting Journey-pearls and swirls
