Faerie Marci Round Trinket Box

I totally forgot to share this project with you.  This round trinket box was one of the project at my last Workshop and it was also one of the samples for our Booth at CHA.  This trinket box features FAERIE MARCI, one of the stamps which was released CHA in Chicago just a few weeks ago!!  

I made a round trinket box with a circle Easel card on the top of the lid.  I think it turned out very pretty and feminine.  It's whimsical and has a magical feel to it with all the lacey elements, vellum flowers, butterflies and pearls.  A perfect fit for our pretty Faerie Marci!!

Project Recipe:
Stamps: Faerie Marci, click HERE to buy
Papers: Craft Cardstock by Bazzill, Vellum paper for flowers
Tools: Making Memories Circle Cutter, Spellbinders Circle and Scallop Circle Dies, Martha Steward Butterfly, Flower, Leaf and Border Punches, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
