Project W022: Shabby Chic Treasure Box

Friday, August 10, 2012

Happy Friday everyone!
Where have I been? Well I went back to work first of all, ugh, and then its been 100 degrees plus here, so that isn't helping, and I am working on a very exciting project that I will share with all you soon, its consuming a bit of my time, but it will be worth the hard work!! OK so for the next few Project W's I really wanted to focus on using your stash and what you have. Many people including myself buy things and don't really use them, I bought a Graphic 45 chipboard box a while back that included a mini inside. I really didn't know what direction to take. Until now lol. So if you have one of those and aren't sure how to tackle it, you are in for a treat! I will show you! If you don't have one any chipboard box, or box will work too! I also used some older Pink Paislee mistables paper I had stashed away, so much fun to use. I also used some yummy Prima Flowers and stamps of course, which can be found at my favorite place at the moment, Paper Issues of course, that's my new Prima Place for sure!!!

Ok here is the Treasure Box:
















Nice isn't it? Did I mention its super easy to make? Yes! A special thanks to my friend Cathi for the beautiful trims she sent me, they are sooo pretty!!

OK here are the project sheets!





OH awesome! Well hope you have enjoyed this one, and be sure to stop on by the Paper Issues Store stock up on some goodies, and save 20% using my special discount code HAUSOFW!!! YAY!!

Have a good weekend!
