Another project using a great collection from Graphic 45. Once again, I picked up this paper collection at the Scrap N Create retreat this past March. The papers are gorgeous, and they worked beautifully with the project I designed for the April Graphic 45 Upcycle Challenge on Facebook.

I used a cigar box gifted to my craft supplies by my sister Mary. I distressed the box to make it look weathered like a trunk. I added a drawer, hardware, and other elements from the paper collection, to make this unique display. I applied Glossy Accents© to a jewelry bezel I had in my jewelry making supplies, along with a cut out from the paper collection. I attached the piece with some ball chain I had from my Tim Holtz Idea-ology supplies. In addition, I used kraft-tex© to make the leather-like straps.

You can watch a video of this project on my YouTube channel. I have added links below to some of the products I used to create this project.
