Shabby Chic Embellishment Box

 Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to you all! Today I have a fun project I designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon and The Robins Nest Creative using the gorgeous ribbons, laces, and then dew drops. Love how fun and easy this was to create.
So I had this little bead box that I got for free a long time ago, and thought it would be super cute decorated using some design paper, flowers I made, and ribbons and laces. I think the thing that took me the longest was the flowers as I had to fussy cut them out an then do my faux glass technique on them. 

I started by using some of Heartfelt creations design paper and the flowers were part of this collection. I did fussy cut them out and then did my faux glass technique on them you can see one of my videos here under tutorials as I have many. I love doing this on the flowers once in awhile and have done this for many many years. Now I did measure the box and cut out some card stock in white, and design paper to fit this box, and used Scor-tape to attach them to the box on the inside and outside. Next I added the beautiful dew drops in yellow to the centers of the flowers. I also did the leaves as well. Lastly for the flowers I added some of RRR Rose buds in white and pink. love the look! Ooo I did also use some flourishes for the greenery. 

Window - Its a shaker window die I used from Cheery Lynn, its an old one and not sure if they are even sold anymore, but love it. I added inside of it some of the Robins Nest Dew Drops and some little shaker balls and then some beads. I did add a butterfly dew drop and some pink dew drops to the shutters.

Cluster of flowers- So first I added my Ribbon and I chose the pink Shimmer Satin as it matched this paper perfectly, then I added some Gabrielle Lace as I made both into bows and hot glue them onto the box. Next I added my large flower, some leaves, an then the medium size flowers, and then the small. After adding all my flowers I chose to use some green tear drops (dew drops) from the Robins Nest Creative to the greenery on this. Love how it looks. Lastly I added a tag.

The sides can hold any crafting goodies, gift cards, candy, or office supplies. The inside can hold a little gift or whatever you choose.

Shabby Chic Purse

Hello crafty friends and Happy Wednesday to you all! Todays project is a darling purse I did for the Robins Nest Creative using a darling die and the beautiful dew drops. I will list everything below on what I used. Loved making this darling and can't wait to make more.

To Start

To start I picked my design papers and shabby chic Purse Box die I wanted to work with, this die is from Scrap Diva Designs and you can SAVE 10% on the dies there using Coupon Code CHERYLWALKER at checkout. I then picked my flowers and trim. Next I chose my dew drop colors I wanted. I ended up choosing the Beautiful Hyacinth, and hearts dew drops, love these!

I cut out my cream card stock for the purse, and then the layering pieces are Graphic45, I then cut out the heart window using a heart die. Next I glued the pieces together and added some lace using hot glue. I also glued the box together using hot glue and liquid glue. Now my Purse box is ready for dew drops

I do have tons of photos on the Robins Nest Blog here.

Paris Girl Shaker Topper

Hello crafty friends and happy Monday to you all. Today's Paris girl bag topper was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon and for a swap my dear friend and I did , it was to be Paris themed and this was one of the projects I made for her. I used lots of Really Reasonable Ribbon, and flowers on this beauty. This was my 1st bag topper ever, and love it! 

For my bag topper, I used a die that I bought a couple years back and cut some of the Paris girl design paper, and Becky Higgins design paper with it. I used some acetate for the window and the shaker sprinkles are a mix of sprinkles added to the inside. I absolutely had a blast decorating this using the beautiful ribbons from really reasonable ribbon. I used the bold check and 5/8 inch and then used the pearl pink sateen with metallic edge in 3/8" to create my bows. Next are used Open roses indifferent pinks and sizes, I also used the sweetheart blossoms and Minnie sweetheart blossoms. I wanted to add some greenery so I added some of the dewdrops in greens throughout the flowers. I then added a heart dew drop, and a butterfly dew drop. I love the way this bag topper turned out and definitely will be making more of them. I gifted this to her last week along with all the other goodies I made and she loved it all! I sure did have fun doing this and the little embellishments for her. I hope she enjoys everything! 

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a lovely day! Hugs to all , Cheryl
