One scrapbooking paper craft company that I think produces some of the prettiest papers, is Graphic 45! Now if you're not familiar with Graphic 45, they produce scrapbooking papers and craft products which have a vintage look. More specifically, this vintage look captures the feel of the 1920's and 30's!
I always look forward to when they come out with new products because (I think) their design work and themed paper pack ideas, just gets better and better. Recently, I discover some of their papers from their Mon Amour collection. The papers in this collection are so beautiful and scream vintage, romantic valentines. After coming across a paper entitled ''Mon Amour'', I knew it would be perfect for a Valentine's Day project!
So today folks, I'm going to be showing you how to create a vintage inspired decoupage jewelry box for Valentine's Day!
Now the paper-mache jewelry box that I'm using in this project, is from Darice. In this jewelry box, you have a mirror, a ring compartment, one small jewelry compartment and one big jewelry compartment. It's really the perfect size for a project like this and can hold a nice amount of jewelry.
For the decoupaging and look of this box, I wanted to go with something that was really vintage, but more on the darker side. This is because I wanted the paper to standout. However, decoupaging is all about being creative! So you can really have fun decorating your own jewelry box, with embellishments, glitter and even distress markers.
