Then take some very pretty paper (I used Pink Petticoat's 'Flourishes' in Pebble, both negative and positive) and a lot of glue, some ribbon, flowers, pearls, hinges and a nice sentiment.....
... and you get this:
I painted the whole thing a very pale white-with-a-hint-of-blue and left it to dry. Then I tore the papers up and then sort of papier-macheted it all over, set in the hinges (Poppicrafts, of course!), inked around the edges to get that 'distressed' look; then added ribbon and stuff. I quite like it.
I made it to keep some cards in at work. TFL xx
