A Shabby Gift

A wee while ago in preparation for Christmas I made this  Configuration box for a gift, not saying who for yet!  This is half of a 5.75 x 10.75 box. I seperated the base and lid and split the inner boxes into two sets, one set to go with the base for this project and the other and the lid for another project.

I painted the back of the main box and the insides of the inner boxes in a sort of shabby style, then starting covering it with Pink Paislee "Sweetness" papers and a pot of Claudine Hellmuth Matte Medium. When filling the compartments I wanted to build o nthe floral and shabby feel of the papers so went for a selection of winged things and flowers including a Prima Butterfly perched on a wooden cotton spool; a cupid made from Cosmic Shimmer Ultra Thick Embossing Crystals in a sugar paste mould; a Dragonfly charm coloured with Inka Gold paints and Glitz stickles; a Prima Can Can flower and pearl bling Scrabble Tiles and more pearl bling
