Vintage Trinket Box

Hi everyone, today I'd like to share a really cute vintage trinket box that I made using a small box I got at a local dollar store. Before doing any altering on the box I painted the inside and outside of the box with a layer of Gesso. I then gave the outside and lid of the box a pink crackle paint effect; it’s a little hard to see the crackle effect in these photos. 

I love fussy cutting the flowers from the “Summer Bouquet” papers which I did for this altered trinket box and glued them down to the outside of the box. I then took some of the off white lace and used some Tea Dye distress ink to give the lace an older vintage look to it and then glued it down on the side of the top of the box. I used two of the Burgundy roses and two of the Rose Pink roses and three of the Dusty Attic medium paper leaves glued them to the top of the box. I had a couple of the wire stems which I twisted up and then popped them into the flower cluster.
