Trinket Box

Hi everyone!

This weekend just gone I  turned a simple little balsa wood box into this sweet trinket box for Green Tara...

I was dying to see how well the banana fibre papers would go used like tissue for covering items... it was so easy to work with!  I adore the fibres showing through, giving it such wonderful texture.  I used Inkssentials Glue'n'Seal to adhere the banana fibre paper and while still wet applied some Tim Holtz stains and blended them through with more Glue'n'Seal. 

I cut up some of the Silver Stems to pop into the ribbon bow, they add such a delicate sparkle to everything.

I love the little metal embellishments Green Tara stock, they are so easily transformed if the silver isn't working for your project.  Just give them a thin coat of acrylic paint or gesso, then when dry add another coat and then add some stains for more colour.

The Silk Flowers with Swarovski Crystals have become a favourite of mine, they are simple so sweet with that gorgeous sparkly center.

Until next time, take care,
Mis xo
