Just slightly altered gift box. Such a sweet faces little cherub on this thrift store box, I HAD to buy it! I filled it with my custom blend of paper shred (as I do with ALL my gift boxes) and added the love definition on the left side, the stamped ‘bliss’ tag and gave her a hand cut gold glittered crown.
More layers of papers and paper lace on this backing.
Having used up all the birds I had, it was time to move on to the sea life embellishments. Seahorse in a tiny frame and pair of starfish on dictionary page with tea stained backing.
Seahorse and starfish.
In the past, I have also done assemblages like this using REAL shells. Leave the glass out and use a sand paper or burlap backing to glue the shells to. (for gluing on bulkier things like that I use e6000 adhesive)
Another KEY collage?!?!? This one is just a sticker though. I’m really trying to USE UP a lot of the scrapbook paper and embellishments I have ‘invested’ in over the years. I buy a lot of this kind of stuff but so seldom actually USE it. And I am NOT even a scrapbooker! I just love the STUFF!!!!
NOW, I really have to start doing some OTHER kinds of crafts!!!
