Graphic 45 Retro Hawiian Jewel Box

This beautiful retro jewel box was created with Graphic 45's Travel Lodge papers and embilished with Prima magnolia blooms, butterfly, charms, rhinestones and shells.
I used both the red vine of magnolias and the individual cream colored magnolias to embelish the Island Jewel's hair and corner of box.  Also added two shells, the butterly and rhinestones to top. 
Added this beautiful key and heart trinket tied around the shell so it hangs down over the edge of the box. 
I painted the brass hardware a "hammered bronze" to better match the beautiful ornate Tim Holts Legs.
 Added the "Say it in Rhinestones" swirl and yellow lotus flower.
 Cut the Graphic 45 papers so that Tropical Beach can be read across the top
Cut the top, bottom, sides out and covered the bottom side with a art deco punch from Martha Stewart. Notice the aqua rhinestones on the sides. Also installed the Tim Holts ornate legs.
Painted the inside and lined it with this beautiful cream with dot bling fabric in both the top and bottom as a finishing touch.  If you like this box it is available for sale at my Etsy shop.  See the link on right side at top of page.
