Ever create something that you wished you didn't have to give away? This is one of those times.
My boss asked me for a quick last minute creation for his wife for Christmas ( a week before Christmas mind you). He is buying a house and he wanted me to create something using the photos of the new house to surprise her. I do believe he had scrapbook pages in mind.
I decided upon a box to store photos of the new house.
Fortunately for me, I salvaged a candy box from the office.
What can make a girl feel special? Bling. oh yeah, she's a blingin' kind of gal too, so my project must have some ZVA bling on it.
Quick, simple, easy. Pop some ZVA crystals on the top, a gold foil doily, some beaded velvet trim and it's oh so elegant. And oh so done. I also used some vintage style keys on the top of the box to convey the sentiment of the gift - which is the new home.
I used ZVA Flourish Crystal in Red CRB-05CB-104 for the crystal accent piece.
Please visit my blog for some up close photos of this box. I really love it and this one photo doesn't do it justice.
