A Peek at a Project

Hi, it's Kristina today with my Saturday post. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
I'm working on a project for my daughter's teachers and it's not finished yet but I thought I'd share a peek with you of the part that is complete.
This is a little paper mache box with a lid
Oval Album Box
I covered the box with patterned paper and then sealed the whole thing with Mod Podge. I added some Prima lace (Madeline) around the band of the the lid.
Lid to Album Box
The lid is embellished with some Prima flowers that actually come in white but I hand painted them all to match! There are also Prima leaves and the Prima pearls on there. I stamped a little sentiment that reads: "tell your story" with some Stazon timber brown ink.
There's going to be something included inside the box as part of the gift, but you'll have to wait and see what that is ;)
I'm also going to be making a video on how to create this project, but one thing at a time, I've got to get them done before the last day of school (May 26th!)
