A Peek at a Project

Hope everyone is having a great weekend, I'm off on another 4-wheelin adventure on a hill side in Pennsylvania today! But you didn't come to hear about my ATV escapades, right?
I'm working on a project for my daughter's teachers and it's not finished yet but I thought I'd share a peek with you of the part that is complete.
This is a little paper mache box with a lid
Oval Album Box
I covered the box with patterned paper and then sealed the whole thing with Mod Podge. I added some Prima lace (Madeline) around the band of the the lid. And gave it a light antique color by rubbing a little antique linen distress ink over the lace with a sponge applicator.
Lid to Album Box
The lid is embellished with some Prima flowers that actually come in white but I hand painted them all to match! There are also Prima leaves and the Prima pearls on there. I stamped a little sentiment that reads: "tell your story" with some Stazon timber brown ink.
There's going to be something included inside the box as part of the gift, but you'll have to wait and see what that is ;)
I'm also going to be making a video on how to create this project, but one thing at a time, I've got to get them done before the last day of school (May 26th!)

This is goregous! I love how you made all the flowers coordinate. I love the paper you chose too. I'm sure the recipient will love it:)
