I placed the stencil on the front of the box and applied black ink over the portion I was using with a sponge. I then used the sponge to distress all the edges with the black ink as well. Then I simply layered some paper and a sentiment. I fussy cut the scallop & view finder from the pattern paper. I added a couple stickers from the collection and a few wood vaneer stars that I covered with black ink.
Next I covered the sides and back with the red and white polka dot paper to add a little color.
I finished the inside of the box lid with more red and white paper and the fun paper that the alphabet listed several times including sign language. I thought this was a nice fit for a box that holds note paper. The arrows are different color stickers from the set that I covered with black ink.
My final step was embellishing the top sheet of paper. I added a small strip of patterned paper, and a house shaped wood vaneer piece, again covered with black ink.
That's it for now. Thanks for looking ~ Michelle ~
