Sister Stamps Release #14 - Simona

It's the third and final day of Sister Stamps Release #14 and say hello to Simona! She is full of life and bursting with joy! 

I saw a project at our local Ben Franklin store made out of these boxes so I bought a couple and made them into hair accessory boxes for my twin nieces.  You buy these plain white and can decorate them however you want.  I painted them with a Martha Stewart acrylic paint (color Easter Egg). Then I adhered the ribbon to the front and back (12" each) using strong double stick tape. I adhered DP (Pebbles) on the front and back of the box with DecouPage glue and covered the edges of the ribbon. I gave the outside of the entire box a nice coat of DecouPage glue.  After it dried, I adhered the names with Tombow glue and the mermaids with pop dots.

Here's one close-up

The boxes were probably intended for pencils but my nieces are into hair accessories so I filled them up with all sorts of hair goodies!

It's been a fun release and all of the mermaid stamps will be available tomorrow! If you're not sure where to purchase them, be sure to check out the Sister Stamps blog for retail locations.

A shout out to guest designer Mimi and her wonderful creations. Be sure to check out her blog here!

Thanks for stopping by!
