Shabby-Chic Box by Sue Butler.

Hello Everyone
To start you off for the last week of November, I have decorated a box out of the Prima 'Delight' Papers and chipboard pieces.

And of course to encourage you to make one I have a step by step.

 White Gesso for the first coat and Acrylic paint for the second.
 Measure the sides of the box and cut and score patterned paper.

Diecut a border using complimentary papers.

Attach to the sides of the box.

Elements are Prima flowers with Diamond Dust and lace.

Arranging the first layer of elements; a mix of Tags, crimped paper, embossed paper, Die-cut flower, circles stamped with gesso and a piece of lace.

The second layer of elements; a fancy button, torn prima paper, more lace a butterfly chippie and a metal key.

 The top and last layer, more Prima Chippies and image, adding the flowers and pearls.

 The Pizzaz!

The Finished Box.

 Hope you are inspired by what Prima products can relate to a creation just by layering up.

Have a great week and please pop by the shop and say Hello, we are always happy to have your feedback.
