Pink hat box

Totally Gorjuss-leaf it in
Sentimental Sundays-things with wings
Craft My Life-all crafts challenge

I decorated a small hat box paper mache box for my niece Skylar. I painted it white, then used crackle medium, then put a blush pink as the top coat. I added some gorgeous butterfly papers to the lid, added fabric flowers then a sequined button. I then added lace around the edge of the lid, then flowers and buttons. I hot glued the button on top, so it acts as a handle.
