Pretty Hearts...........

Hi everyone, I'm back to show you the project I made for "Lessology". If you haven't heard its a new challenge blog .......which is all about Up cycling.

 The Trinket Box Challenge! :) Don't we love having little boxes holding fun little treasure we have? Decorate an existing box or make one from scratch! Remember to include at least ONE upcycled item on your creation!
I just love HEART anything.............I've had this box stored in a cupboard for along time, this challenge was the perfect opportunity to give it a new look.
Here is the before picture.

 Look at how pretty it is now!

I made the flower using the "Flower Shoppe" cartridge.........can you see the petals are Heart shape too??
I 've used Kaiser paper........the background is "Timeless" and for the flower I used their new collection "Bonjour".  

The centre of the flower is a very old earing.  I love fairies too, so I added it............and some more pretty Hearts.

                                                              Here is a photo to show you how old it is..........

I painted the inside pink.............and hated it. So then I had the idea to paint a crackle medium over it before I changed the colour. I love how it turned out all old looking!

My box will be used to store all my pretty HEART shape trinkets.

 This box was one of a set .............I can't wait to cover the rest now!
Hope you like it
Thank you for a great challenge
