RRR and my Ballerina Box!


Challenges Entered: Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge
Hello Ribbon Lovers!  I posting today over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings blog and sharing another idea of inspiration for ribbons!  A very grateful February Guest Designer!  Thank you again Bonnie!  I've loved the hop and challenge projects so far, but today's project is one of my favorites!  

For the Tutorial on how the Criss Cross edges of the box were created, pop over tot he RRR Ramblings blog for it!


However, here on my blog, I'm going to share some terrific close-ups and detail of the project with my followers.  


I have a 5 year old niece that collects tea party doilies and hankies and I wanted to make something special for her to keep these dedicates safely in.  The image is by Mitzi and can be found here.  The box is paper mache and the Dp is French Kiss by Glitz design.  I added some pearls from Prima, Shapeology Whimsy dies and BG Serenade design paper too. 


 Tiny Sheer Pink/Orange floral organze!   I added the Parrot Green leaf ribbon by May Arts all the way around the edge of the box to coordinate that stunning color in with the design paper and image.  This also adds loads of texture to the project sides.  Since the top of the box carries most of the embellishments, I felt the sides would need more decoration.   The edges of the box were distressed with Vintage Photo Ink from Ranger, two bows created from three different ribbons ; Sheer Organza White w/Ivory, Sheer Irridescent Peach, and Tiny Sheer Pink/Orange Floral placed together on the top left and bottom right corners top off the crystal dangles that add that girlish sparkle to the project.   The beautiful Ballerina image can be found here.
