ballerina box…

City Crafters’ challenge for this week is calling for a project with a ballerina.  You can visit their blog HERE.  I’ve had a vintage image of three tiny ballerinas, that has remained unused for some time.  I couldn’t decide what sort of project to turn it into.  I debated between a card, a wall hanging or a small box.  This challenge pushed  me to action!  A small papier maché box from Hobby Lobby and this project started to come together…



To begin, I covered the box with some Anna Griffin patterned paper.  Then I set the image into a ‘beaded ovals’ die cut from Spellbinders, that I embossed and colored  through the die with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.



The tiny roses are from Kaisercraft and the little rose leaves were cut with Die-Namics ‘Royal Leaves’ die.


The edge of the lid and the body of the box were embellished with a pearl and lace trim from May Arts.  I love how this trim works well over an edge or along a flat surface. Because the string of pearls is attached to the lace, it’s easy to apply.

Hope your weekend is lovely and thanks for stopping by!
