Sweet Sea Shell Soap Box

Hi Dear Friends,

It has been awhile since I posted something I have made and so I thought I would show you my lovely "Sea Shell Soap Box" that I finished a few days ago. When I received my lovely shell cuff bracelet from Diane Knotts a couple of weeks ago it was wrapped up in a beautifully decorated soap box. I had never seen anything like it before and thought I would try my hand in creating one as well. So here it is...the shells are from my trip to Florida two summers ago now and even the little sea grass I had salvaged from the beach and glued some on as well. I used a gold leaf pen to highlight both of the shells and around the scalloped edge of the vintage picture. I glued some pearls (not real ones) around the scalloped edge of the picture too. The paper I used all around the box is from the Ancestry.com line. I used some netting as well to frame the picture....which reminded me of fishermans netting. To keep the lid on I used some tiny velcro rounds to keep it closed.

So there ya go!! Don't throw your boxes away you can always use them for making so many things...I even cut up small tea and perfume boxes to make tags because the paper is nice and thick to paint on. Use your imgination you never know where it may lead you next.
Thanks Diane for the wonderful idea!!

Hugs, Smiles and Ocean Breezes,



  1. I love Diane's cuff bracelets. This box is great is it one of those everyone was decorating awhile back? From Target I think.
    I will have to go there and get me some.

  2. Ooh so pretty. I love anything with shells.


  3. Your box turned out great! I love those gold leaf pens, and the netting is a wonderful touch. I have lots of little boxes like this saved, waiting for some inspiration to strike. You may have inspired me, thanks!

  4. I love your box, you did a GREAT job! :-)

    Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  5. I feel like I repeat myself so much when I come by here but until I can think of some new way of telling you how creative you are I guess I will just be repective. lol
    Now this is really pretty. Can't wait to see what your having for your giveaway.

  6. Very nice! So pretty! I never would have thought of embellishing a soap box (and they smell so wonderful too). What a great idea.
