Scraps of Elegance
I'm thrilled to share that I was invited to guest design this month for a new etsy shop called
A beautiful little shop filled with exquisite laces and hand made florals. My design team sista Lucy is the owner and I'm so honored she asked me to design for her. Right up my alley and perfect for a shabby chic lover. I was so excited when my package arrived I couldn't wait to get started! I put together a little pillow box for my first project. I'm in love with pillow boxes these days. I love the name "pillow box" too. :)
I cut the box out of cardstock and put it together first. It is a beautiful gift box and can hold a gift card, jewelry, treats etc. The edges of the box are all inked.
I punched the edges of some Prima paper that was in our May Scraps of Elegance kit "Yesterdays" and applied that over the box.
Over the paper I layered the beautiful cream shabby chic floral and lace from Tresor deLuxe.
Another view of this gorgeous lace. I closed the back with a pin and stamped sentiment from Heartfelt Creations. To insert your gift you just need to unpin and then undo the closure I created on the box back.
My next project is a shabby chic tag created with another Prima paper from the May Scraps of Elegance kit. This tag was beautifully enhanced with more shabby chic florals from Tresors de Luxe.
I used a crinkle seam binding and cotton thread and button at the top.
This is a close up of the beautiful floral spray. I've added a couple of Prima flowers from our SOE kit.
The back of the tag holds and envelope I created with my CottageCutz die - large confectionary bag
It holds a little notecard with more Tresors deLuxe lace tucked inside along with a little clothespin from there.
This tag is like candy. I loved creating it and working with these beautiful products. Don't forget to stop by the shop and take a peek.
Stay tuned for more projects later this month featuring Lucy's beautiful laces and handmade flowers.
