As promised pictures of the Jewellrey box

The Jewellery box I made has been collected today and Donna has given me the OK to post the pictures of it.

My brief was it has to have Teal on it, the box has too be pretty and it has to have her name on it

Here is the finished box - be warned there are a few pictures!

I wanted a touch of a vintage look to it and that's something I don't do too well

The top

Once the box was painted I added a length of pale grey braid to the front edge, a small rose was adhered to each end to complete

Close up of the flowers

The stamp is one of my personal favourites from a set by Rhonna Farrer, I have added a swirl of lace topped off with the layered flowers, I used both crochet and paper flowers with  the small roses in the centre, more Roses and flat backed pearls highlight the stamping

The front

Both colours of paint I have used are from Laura Ashley, Ivory and Pale Teal, the large paper flowers were cream but to make them match the box I painted them in Teal, they turned out great and no problems painting them in emulsion paint either. The ribbon around the box was a perfect match so once I had added the glued that one I finished it with another layered flower and a tassle.

I used my Cricut to cut the name using the Winter Woodland cartridge, I love that one the font is so pretty, I cut it from SU card but I don't know the colour, sorry! and finished it with more pearls.

That's it finished and Donna loved it so what do you think?


  1. Just stunning. The colours work so well together - beautiful item.
