Good morning!!! I have the most exciting news!!!!!!
Are you ready for this? I have the distinct honor of being one of the DT members for Sugar Creek Hollow,,,,,,,,one of my absolute FAVORITE challenges in the whole of blog-land!!!!!!!
I may or may not have danced around the kitchen like a mad person when I was asked LOL.
AND this week's challenge is one of my FAVORITES that they do too! WOO HOOO off to a good start!
Trash to Treasure is this week's theme! Take something that would ordinarily head to the trash or the recycle bin, and make vintage/shabby chic/ or primitive TREASURE with it! Although you may USE scraps, they can not count for your "trash", so go get crafty with it and make something GORGEOUS.
Without further ado,,,,,,,,,,here is my "trash"! It's a cookie tin, the tall skinny kind.
I have been wanting to make something with this tin for weeks now! And I was so THRILLED that I get to use it for my first DT project with Sugar Creek Hollow!
Here's the front,,,,,
Here's the back,,,,,,,,,,
I covered the tin with this gorgeous pink, pearlescent paper from DCWV's Luxury Stack,,,,,,it's stunning. I found the vintage ballerinas on the Graphics Fairy, button to the right,,,,,,,,,,aren't they GORGEOUS? I just LOVE them,,,,,,I actually used the same prints for another project about a year ago, but they seemed so perfect for this project, I couldn't resist them.
I cut each of the prints out with Ovals large, and then matted with more pink DCWV Luxury Stack paper which I cut out with Lacey Ovals. I adhered beautiful white eyelet lace around the bottom and layered a string of pearls around that,,,,,,,,and trimmed the rim of the lid with 1/4 inch velvet ribbon. I covered the lid with more pink paper and then a gorgeous rose vintage image was adhered on top.
I cut several heart locks out with my big shot (spellbinders Heritage dies), glued them together for thickness and then painted the whole with TH crackle medium,,,,,,a bit of white paint and a center pearl to look shabby chic, and I hung that on a silky ribbon with a gold key. A gorgeous bow with both pink and white sheer ribbon, a flower and some looped pearls, a vintage rose ticket, and she's done!
Here's a close up of the heart, key and bow,,,,
