Ribbons and Lace Oh My!

The theme this month at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog is to use ribbon/and or lace. I’ve had this paper mache book box for years, and you can see below what it used to look like. My failed attempt at doing a type of collage. Which I’m still not good at! So I totally remade this into something more pleasing to my eyes. I painted it with a couple coats of acrylic paint, then just glued on some lace and ribbon. I have tons of lace from when I used to sew, and never use it. So now was a perfect time! I had to add some type of stamping, so I used my favorite ippity flower stamp. I stamped it twice onto dp, then clear embossed the whole flower. Cut them out, and stacked them together, and glued it on the box. Now I have a cute box to store some trinkets and embellishments in. Thanks for taking a look!
