{Precious One Altered Box}

I had so much fun creating this box over the course of many cold winter days! I used a cigar box as the base and painted and distressed it a shabby white color. On the interior, I added old music sheets, vintage laces, a darling antique cabinet card, white glove, baby shoe and lovely bits of rhinestone jewelry.

All our snow is gone from the rain and the frozen lakes are unsafe for the fishermen. What a strange January this has been! Hope you have a blessed Sunday.

About Sugar Lump Studios

I am a dabbler. I love to create using all sorts of mediums...pattern papers, stamping, fabric, assemblage, collage, altered art, a never ending smattering of whatever strikes my fancy in whimsical moments. I find creating allows my soul to be fulfilled and love to spend hours in the studio.
