ALTER ART :Trinket box with a shaker dome .

hello dear creators !
how r u doing today ? hope feeling creative and wanting to try some fun altered projects (lately this has been my favorite part of the day to alter some old stuff and give it new life ) so this time a chose an old box at my place ,a handmade circular box to be precise and used up my supplies from madras bazaar. (this time i thought i would create a shaker ,and could make good use of the peach lush gorgeous sequins sent in my DT kit this month )

so lets check out what we shall be creating
super gorgeous rings with adorable lush sequins 

the amazing Dollie style wooden chippie : says it perfectly (LOVE)

the perfectly coordinating pink lace trim , wht say ?

a click in a sun-kissed manner 


check out the sheen !

the in-tacked card and lots of space for the special gift 

the fun shaker !

love love love the sequins 



so here is the complete click !

so if u liked it , then lets check out its tutorial :

PICTORIAL : #longpostalert 


i have taken the box and stuck the paper to it (used linen paper )

 similarly measured the other parts and stuck them too . stuck the top too similarly 

here is the finished look after attaching the paper 

 used the trim and tacky tape to secure it in place 

these were my focus element , the heart i painted in gold .

 added the connected pearl string over a white satin ribbon .

i placed the chippie to the corner of the dome (for no just making the placement .)

used flowers from my stash and also added a ring embellishment
         and stuck them with the glue gun  


i then poured loads of sequen to the center of the chippiee 

then using the glue gun stuck the dome using glue gun and covered the edge with the pearl string again


later used the trim to create this broach out of paper and a quote from the                                              same paper pack and made a circular card for its base which fits the box.

i used a fabric flowers and a few other flowers and used the sequins to decorate the card .


so finally we r done ! 

hope u enjoyed the tutorial :)
