Altered Jewelry Box

I recently designed this shabby fairytale jewelry box for The Crafty Scrapper using the new Magic Happens collection.

This is the top shelf with a removable photo tag. The picture is of my daughter on her second birthday. I added lots of Prima roses, and a Maya Road butterfly, Maya Road scroll, Maya Road window ledge, and MME buttons, and lots of bling!

The drawers to which I added Jenni Bowlin buttons and Maya Road resin flowers and a chipboard heart.

Hand-dyed seam binding and crepe paper tie on these sweet metal charms.

The hand-cut fairy is holding a removable wand that I painted gold and adorned with flowers, buttons, and ribbons.

I added sweet scalloped shingles to the roof when my friend Brook told me to go all out. :)

The back side of the tag has another picture of Sofie on her second birthday. New dress, and different expression. ;)

I painted the insides of the drawers a rich purple, and added a few flowers in as well. I just love the whole thing. :) I might teach it as a class in May.

Thanks for looking. Happy Scrapping! :)
