A simple box of twine. . .

A simple roll of twine needn’t be boring. . .

. . . well, not in the Shabby Art Boutique studio at least.

Pink and white baker’s twine looks even prettier when given its own storage box to reside in.

What started out as a simple paper mache round box. . .

was quickly and easily transformed into a pretty vintage rose box with some lovely graphics from The Graphics Fairy.

Add a paper doily, ribbon, pearl beads for feet and some pale pink paint. . .  and you have the makings of a pretty desk top box

An eyelet in the top of the lid allows the twine to flow easily when pulled.

Ahhh . . . how sweet she is!!

I’m sharing her this week at Brag Monday @ The Graphics Fairy, White Wednesday @ Faded Charm, Party Time @ 36th Avenue, Creative Things Thursday @ Vintage Farmhouse, Feathered Nest Friday @ French Country Cottage, The Creative Spark @ Clean and Scentsible,

. . . plus all the lovely gals at these Link Parties during the week.
