Trinket box

Hi everyone, it’s me, Gabrielle here with you today to share with you another whimsical trinket box!   I’ve had these cute little 3D Birdhouse chippies in my stash for some time now and have finally had an opportunity to use them!  If you are like me, you always need lots of trinket boxes to house your scrapping stash and photos.  Personally, I think if you are going to have boxes sitting around you may as well make them look pretty right?

These little birdhouses where so easy to put together I just traced out the pieces on some pretty patterned paper (I used Maja Design papers from the Sofiero collection, and some from the Vintage Spring and Summer Basics colleciton).  Once I had my patterned papers glued to the panels and just glued each of the houses together.  Then the fun stuff started….dressing up the little houses with tiny picket fences, grasses, scrolls, key holes, branches, birdies, topiaries, vines, bricks and blooms.

And since it’s a box, you dont’t want to forget the back since it can be seen from all angles!  Here I used the ‘Elegant Flourish Small’ chippie from Dusty Attic and a cameo to pretty up the back of the box.  I also added extra blooms, grasses and picket fences to the backs of the houses.

Maja Design Supplies:  Patterned Paper: Sofiero Collection (Strolling Down the Rose Path,  Enjoying the Fragrance,Exuberance of flowers in bloom-bs, Enjoying the Frangrance-bs, The Elegant Winehouse), Vintage Summer Basics (1905, 1934-bs), Vintage Spring Basics (6th of May).

I hope you enjoyed my project today, Maja Design papers work as beautifully on ‘off the page’ projects as they do for scrapbook layouts!  Give it a try! xo
