Altered Comfort

Today I wanted to share a fun and easy gift box. This is a little box that I altered from a paper mache round container. I covered the outside with paper, using Scor-Tape to adhere the paper to the box.
I added lace trims and crinkled seam binding, along with pearl pin embellishments.
The paper ephemera is by K & Co. The lace trims I have had in my stash for awhile and the seam binding was purchased in an Etsy Shop.
The sentiment is from a Kit of the Month by Unity Stamp Co. I stamped on the designer paper, then cut out using Spellbinders Classic Heart dies.


I love baths with yummy scents, candles, and music - low lights - a little glass of something refreshing - and serenity kicks in! Pleasurable for all the senses!

This is a little gift set I made my my in-college daughter!

Ink: Blue Bayou, Antique Linen and Spun Sugar Distress
