Webster's Pages: A Trinket Box for Mom {w/Tutorial~!}

Good morning! We're coming up on Mother's Day weekend here, and we're getting ready for the holiday at Webster's Pages with some gifts for mom! I've got a little trinket box that I created for my own mom, as well as a step-by-step tutorial for those of you who would like to put one together yourself :).

"Mother's Day Trinket Box"

Pin It

Supplies Needed:

{Papers}
New Beginnings Collection "Morning Glory"
New Beginnings Collection "A Life to Celebrate"

{Trims}
New Beginnings "Blue Ruffle"
New Beginning "Orange & Pink Polka"
Modern Romance "Butter Rosette"

{Embellishments}
Modern Romance Perfect Accents "Heart"
Charm Perfect Pack "Love Birds"
New Beginnings Sentiment Stickers
Quick Picks Stick Pin

Other:
Box (I purchased a cheap kraft-type box from Hobby Lobby for 50 cents)
Mod Podge (I used matte)
Paintbrush (easiest with a larger one)
Scissors
Hot Glue Gun
Pencil

Let's get started! There are 8 easy steps in completing this project. Forgive my first couple of photos with my messy desk, ha! I wasn't sure if I was actually going to do a step-by-step until you can see I committed to it by Step 3 ;). I hope you enjoy!









Voila!


 Happy Mother's Day to you who celebrate- I hope you enjoy your weekend :). And thank-you for dropping by my blog and letting me share with you!

Take care,
