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 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…
