I was inspired to make this quick and easy box after indulging in a guilty pleasure, a fancy make-up set. The colors on the box reminded me of Bohemian Bazaar and I decided I could work with the palate. With school right around the corner, this would make a perfect pencil box at the desk of any teen.
To start off, I picked out my papers and took some measurements. Nothing had to be perfect, since I decided to embrace the colors present in the box and let the edges show.
To create interest on the top, I matted the title page of the paper with a contrasting paper that had a small print.
I used scor tape throughout this project. I love that it is ready for you when you want, and there is zero dry time!
Next, I started to play with the layout of my embellishments. I always try to plan things out so that I have balance with color, as well as content.
In order to give my resin pieces a little more interest, I used Vintaj Patina. I simply added it in a few spots and then wiped it off, letting a bit of the color stay in the crevices.
A heavy craft glue was used to adhere my flowers and corners.
And here is the finished box. I left the inside unaltered, as I intended this to be a school/pencil box. The sturdy plastic coated paper will take the wear and tear of lose markers, uncapped pens and pencil shavings come September.
I gifted this little prize to one of my artsy pals, Brittney. She is fun and vibrant just like my little treasure box. I hope you found a bit of inspiration in this post.
