Vintage Chocolate Box by Adriana


Hi everyone, 
Adriana show us her project for Meg's Garden this month.

Adriana explains,"Today I have covered a chocolate box 
with the Elements papers from Meg's Garden and 
New paper collection Dreaming in the Meadows



Firstly, I ate the chocolates.....yummy.....
then I covered the top and bottom of the box with 
dusty pink coloured card stock, 
which I embossed with a Couture Creations embossing folder.
I applied white Distress Paints on the embossed cardstock. 
It looks and feels like velvet.




On the top of the box I decorated it with
German Scrap border on the each edge. 
Then I glued some German scrap border on the each end.
I apply glossy accents to the chipboard frames and placed
some German Glass Glitter and tea stained fragments. 
I placed a paper Doily and a Vintage Beauty Image
inside the glittery frame.

I adhered two Organza Lace in dusty pink and green 
at each end and a 
transparent Butterfly for an extra touch.




Around the edges I covered with the newest paper collection
Dreaming in Rose paper , some German Scrap
To finish and close this 
box with a Striped satin Ribbon - Brown and latte colour 






Inside the box I covered it with
French Cinema Elements paper from the
Elements Packs available also from 
Meg's garden website. 
Then I decorated on the edges with small
 paper Doily and German Scrap







Inside the box is a Vintage Beauty tag and a little note book
and matching pen. These are made from the new papers 
Dreaming in the Meadows paper - Dreaming in Mulberry & Dreaming in Lavendar





The materials I have used on the tag are 
Striped satin Ribbon - Brown and latte colour 
5cm white lace

The notebook and covered pen is made with the
Dreaming in Mulberry paper
Cornsilk flower
Elements for the Paris cover

Thanks for looking
Cheers Adriana XX

What a gorgeous box Adriana - well done & thank you so much for your instructions - very clear.
Bye for now
