Princess-worthy

If you're any kind of a pack rat like me, then you
quite possibly could have one or two of those cute little
wooden boxes that paper flowers or embellishments come in...
or a cigar or paper mache box would also work.

I've used mine to create an Elegant embellished box befitting any princess!
The new Classique: Elegant Collection by Authentique Paper 
is reminiscent of  Tiffany Co. blue and Audrey Hepburn :)

 I painted the base of the box with a black acrylic paint to begin. If you don't want to fuss
 with cutting the paper around the clasp, then leaving that area painted is a good way to go :)

I took a Maya Road chipboard 'girl' and covered her with one of the 6X6 papers. 
Across her front, I attached a sash of blue vintagey trim that I further embellished with some
 pearl/rhinestone picks that I found in the bridal section of Hobby Lobby. 
Next, I painted a chipboard crown from Leaky Shed Studio and glued to the top of the girl.
I bent the legs of the chipboard girl, applied high tack glue to the bottom and then
was able to attach the girl to the glass inset of the lid.

 I edged around the glass opening with some braided upholstery trim. For the flowers,
 I used a die by My Favorite Things and two patterns from the 6X6 Elegant Paper. 
 Lastly, I added a border of black/white dot ribbon to the bottom of the box and used the
 same ribbon as an accent bow for the front.  This would also make a cute table
 decoration for a bridal shower orother fun girlie event! 
What girl wouldn't love a 'Tiffany' themed party!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
