MB's Treasurista Love Blog Hop


      


Welcome to the MB's Treasurista Love Blog Hop! Thank you so much for joining us today on this amazing blog hop. This is the second MB's Treasurista Design Team blog hop. I hope you will follow along to all the amazing ladies blogs to see their beautiful projects as well.  If you came from the fabulous Lina's Sweet Nothings Paper Co Blog then you are in the right spot. If you just came across my blog but would love to hop along then start here at Misty's MB's Treasurista Blog

Now I want to share my project. For this months DT project I created an altered balsa box. The theme was love or valentines day so here it is:


I used a balsa box from Michaels as the base of my project. I painted it with a light teal color I created by mixing Americana paint in Bahama Blue & white.  I then cut out the paper from the My Minds Eye Love Me collection. I love this new collection. Super cute! I adhered it to the box using Mod Podge.  I lined the bottom of the box with the cream satin and organza trim from MB's Treasurista. Isn't that super cute?!? I also went around the top flap and the back of the box with the silver mesh bling. For the knob closure I cut out an image from the MME paper collection and covered it in glossy accents to give it a finished look.


For the top corner I used several I Am Roses flowers and a tulle spray and then used the light blue and clear acrylic flowers from MBT. The stick pin is a Maya Road Trinket Heart. Love those! 


For this corner another I Am Roses flower and the pink acrylic flower spray from MBT along with several Recollections flowers.
