LESSology challenge 2 ~ Trinket Box

Hey, I am back here for a project for LESSology Challenge # 2 - The Trinket Box Challenge


I started with my favorite eye cream.....


that comes with a cute little box....
and here's a little tutorial for you

trace the 4 sides of the box onto your favorite patterned paper


I like to mark it at the back of the paper so it won't get messed up...


glue them on the box and now the lid, I used kraft cardstock and add a little distressed ink on the edges...


a little stamping won't hurt....


so here it is......


so what should I do with those old book pages I cut out from my Paris Book project?


why not this? 
fold......


trim.....


glue.....


a little bit of mist + fabric.... TADA.....





now I think I just need a diamond ring inside.... LOL!

ok, come join in the fun at LESSology Challenge # 2 - trinket box challenge
