Sailboat trinket box

Hadde et ferdig stempeltrykk av en båt som passet så godt med fargene på arket jeg tenkte å bruke opp. Så det ble en liten sjømotiv eske! Hadde ikkenoe mal, bare kutt ivei.. og dermed ble det litt tull med lokket ~ men okay resultat til slutt :)

This box is made entirely freehand, using a cool reeeeally old paper, more than 5 yrs I think ~ and I've no idea who produced it (great quality!). Since I winged it on the measurements.. the lid had to be cut down with scissors to fit the text already stamped on... leaving jagged edges.. so the ribbon is mostly for covering up! *lol* :)

  2. Very lovely trinket box. I love the papers you've used and how you stamped a sentiment on all sides. The top is very well done. It really goes nicely with the papers you've used to create the box. Nice job of colorizing your sail boat and then distressing the edges.
