On her YouTube channel you will find awesome inspiration for exquisite mini albums and cards to name a few things. Shellie breaks the tutorials down in easy to follow steps, ensuring you get the most use out of your paper pads. Go check her out.
I started by painting the edges of the entire box. While that was drying I measured, cut, distressed and inked all the papers (this paper line is gorgeous). Once the paint was dry, I used a gel matte medium to adhere all the papers. For something different on the upper right corner of the top, I put a small piece of cardstock down then rolled the corner of the top paper around a paintbrush. Once the matte medium dried, I began using hot glue and Art Glitter glue to adhere 2 layers of trim around the mirror inside, one layer around the inside of each cubbie, and around the top of the jewelry box. For the outside corners I finagled the corners to resemble an ascot sort of. All of the laces are from the Martha Steward package from J&S Hobbies and Crafts. I then added flat back pearl trim, and flower clusters. I snipped one end of the Resin Oval Frame (so it would fit) adhered and image from my stash and made a cereal box shim so the frame would sit even on the box. For finishing touches I added a butterfly inside and outside then coated all flowers and butterflies with several coats of Glitter Clear Wink of Stella.
