It’s the start of a new year and I thought how about a nice desk top calendar to go with the beautiful new collection of papers from Megs garden, Chantilly Cream.
Using card stock I made a box and covered it with papers from Chantilly Cream collection. The papers are in such nice tones that making an elegant project is very easy. I placed a small 2016 calendar on top and decorated it with gold pearls and a paper lace dollies.
The beautiful gold bow on top wrapped in silk flowers from Megs Garden finished it off perfectly.
Using four large match boxes I made draws to put little treasures in. I left a small hole to pop a pen in it for marking on the calendar.
I attached lace around the sides and silk flowers to make every side pretty.
By using a stencil and texture paste I added more dimension to the paper on the sides of the box.
I inked all edges with a dark brown to give it an aged look.
I really enjoyed making this project and I hope it has inspired you to use this collection on your next project.
Bye for now.
