This week's Shabby Tea Room inspiration photo got me thinking about making another little box similar to the one under the table in this photo.! Isn't this a wonderful shabby chic scene?! I don't decorate my home in this style - but I do love looking at it!
I started with a little oval wood chipboard box 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" and covered it with patterned paper that had been sponged with Tea Dye Ink (of course!) I made my cluster of roses using red felt - you can see how I made these on my post here. I painted and sparkled a grungeboard scrolly and tucked it under the sentiment panel - to mimic the white leg on the table in the photo.
The sentiment and frame are Waltzingmouse.I even made a handle for my little box. I punched a hole on each end with my Cropadile and threaded a piece of hemp twine through the holes knotting the ends on the inside. This is actually long enough to pull up and use to carry this little box!
