Paper Mache Box - Hobby Lobby
Mini album - Melissa Frances
Paint - Ranger Distress Picket Fence Crackle, MM Celery & Asphalt
PP - Chatterbox, Doodlebug (inside mini album)
CS - PTI Hibiscus, Stampers Select White, Summer Sumrise
Ink - PTI Hibiscus, Summer Sunrise, Plum Pudding, New Leaf
Stamps - PTI Wishing You, Just Hatched
Ribbon - PTI New Leaf bitty dot, Hibiscus satin
Other - SU Scallop border punch, Marvy oval punches, Hobby Lobby bling

I have had this box sitting on my craft table for a couple of weeks now and finally sat down to make something with it! I used the crackle paint on the egg and on the cover of the mini album. For the base of the box I covered the front with Chatterbox flocked paper. The back and sides I painted with the MM celery paint, with a bit of the asphalt paint mixed in to match the PP.

I did not like the front of the mini album with just the crackle paint so I cut the PP a little smaller, so that the finish would still show, and put it on the cover.
It is really hard to see in the pictures, but I just love the different textures between the crackle finish, flocked papers and the satin ribbons. Oh, we can't forget the little bit of bling!
