Trinkets Galore!

I needed a place to put all of my chipboard and embossing powders so I went to Hobby Lobby and found this plain white box ($1.99). I knew I could store a lot of chipboard in it and decided to make it my stash box. Obviously I had to turn it into a craft project. 

used two different scrap papers. The top is sprayed on the sides using Prima Bloom spray (Iris), Dylusions (Calypso teal), and Lindys Stamp Gang (Salt Water Taffy and Aloha Avocado). I glued my paper to the top and used different embellies to accent it, but not too many because I wanted to be able to take the lid off with no worries about messing anything up. I also sprayed some cheesecloth and layered it behind the chipboard pieces. The little 7 chipboard is covered in Inka Gold green/yellow.

Using a damask Prima stencil I added some texture to the side paper pieces, just to give it a shabby feel. I glued these to the sides and added some rub on words from Tim Holtz. 

I finished the edges with Powder Puff chalk ink Very Berry and now I have a pretty stash box. 

This design is entered into the following challenges:
