I barely have time to craft, but I did last weekend before soccer, lacrosse and wrestling! I found this little suitcase box in my stash and went to work. I painted it a light buttermilk (because it was on my craft table after I painted all of my heart charms). I also found this pretty Paris label in my stash and used gel medium to secure it.
Inside, I added some velvet paper to the bottom (so jewelry is protected) and then I used gel medium to attach all these bits of mulberry paper. Oh, I stamped the mulberry paper with French script and Paris postage symbols before I ripped it to shreds and secured it. I love the transparent result.
After all the gel was dried, I lightly antiqued it with a soft sponge and Tim Holtz Distress ink (I love that stuff). Happy that it turned out the way it did.
