Therm O Web is having a fun challenge on their Facebook Page in honor of Earth Day. The challenge is to take something old into something new. I decided to play along and took this wooden trinket box that was a little rough and gave it new life with paper, flowers, and some Therm O Web adhesive.
If you read my blog regularly, you probably won't be surprised when I tell you the box is from Hobby Lobby and was a bargain from the clearance aisle for $2.00. To begin, I popped off the crown decoration.
This paper is soooo pretty! It is "Tiptoe" from the Prima Flights of Fancy Collection. It is two sided so the patterns you see are from the same sheet of paper.
The embellishments on the lid include some of my favorites from Prima. The skeleton leaves are sheer and silver as are the crystal sprays, both of which are from the Holiday Lights collection. Underneath it all is an adhesive felt die cut. The flower is from the Fairyring collection.
As far as adhesives, I used Therm O Web's Mounting Adhesive sheets, Zots, and adhesive foam squares. I cut some of the foam squares it small pieces and tucked them into the layers of the petals to give them some life so they wouldn't lay flat.
I think the box turned out quite pretty, especially in comparison to where it started.
