Book Trinket Box Project

Yes, this was one of the many projects from the La-la Land 2 day Craft Workshop.  The newly released Book Trinket Box can be found here and is a project kit that can be used many ways. There is also a You Tube video on how to assemble this box - easy peasy.  I decided to throw in a little Asian flair to the box by using one of the  Graphic 45 Shanghai Girls from their Bird Song Collection.  She fits so perfectly in the opening.  I did keep the Bird Cage (which was the original design) but positioned it off to the left side. All the edges have been sponged using brown ink.   Finished project size is 5" x 6" x 1".  
A view of the side.
Love that spine!
This Large Rolled Rose sits on many layers of the Lotus Die which also sits on the Open Flourish Leaf.
Here's those Large, Medium and Small Rolled Roses (all dies can be found in the La-la Land online store here). The roses sit on the Open Flourish Leaf. The leaf stick pins are from Maya Road: a perfect accent to the roses.
On each corner of the Trinket Box is the Heart Ribbon Corner embellished with adhesive pearls.
And, here is a close-up of the Graphic 45 Shanghai Girl and the Bird Cage...........
Inside the box: completely covered with decorative paper..............lovely!
Hope you enjoyed seeing this project and are inspired....................more to stay tuned.
