A Classic Trinket Box Upcycle!!!

I think one of my favorite color combinations is the classic and romantic black/white/red. There is just something quite stunning about the 3 colors together and today I'm sharing with you an altered box using that color combination.

Hello everyone, Erika Taylor here today with a completely altered A B C baby block. First off I painted the entire block with Gesso and then starting fussy cutting papers. I used a combination of Red on Red Rope, Silver Fleur-De-Lis, Classified and Glitter Black and White Holly papers as well as Silver Metallic Dew Drops. Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesives, Gemstone Glue and Liquid Scrap Dots were used to adhere everything

To create the Dew Drop Letters L.O.V.E on the sides, I used chipboard letters and added the Dew Drops using Gemstone Glue. Adds that little bit of BLING to this treasure box.




The top is finished with a Metal bow charm and another piece of chipboard that I've inked with Fire Brick distress ink. There are so many great papers for fussy cutting at The Robins Nest and you may have figured out that I love to FUSSY CUT!!!



Here is the finished project for you. I finished it off with a little red lace and VOILA!!!I think it is going to store some of my costume jewelry pieces. Love how this one turned out and I hope you enjoy it as well.



Thanks so much for stopping by Chattering Robins Blog today. Take a look at all of the wonderful papers and Dew Drops available and grab a few today. Until next time
