Classique Pretty in Vintage Pink

Hi All,

Sharing my Vintage Pink Trinket box with you all. You know I've made a trinket box before but it was French Vintage style (to view click the link) and I have to say I enjoy making them. :D I had posted a couple of days ago that I would be posting something special it is.
So here we go - To make this box I used a cigar box that I spray painted black. I tried a couple of different ways to paint this and it just wouldn't work out. I tried Gesso on one and it turned into a mess not sure why but the paper the cigar box had on it started peeling off, so peeled off the paper and then it ended up with pumps all over it. So I just went down to the store and bought some black spray paint. I sprayed the first two coats really lightly just around the edges and same with the 3rd and 4th coat each time allowing the dry time 10 minutes. I sprayed the box outside, plus dry time was faster. I didn't spray the entire outside or inside  of the box cause I knew I would be covering parts of the cigar box with paper.

So here is the Trinket box hope you all like it -

 **** To make the Bows I used the Envelop Maker from (We R Memory Keepers). I placed a magnet inside the bow and one behind the front of the paper so it is a magnetized and closing securely.

***The butterfly is from RenaeBouquets Shop. It just looks simply gorgeous on this paper. :D And the flower I made from an EK Lrg flower Punch and used a decorative edged scissor, the small flower is an small flower punch.

***The inside contains a pocket for tags. You can journal on the other side of the tags or place a photo.
