Trinket Box with Dress Up Marci

Today I would like to share another Trinket Box project.  I had an idea of using the "Polaroid" frame and also wanted to do 3D paper piecing again.  For the paper piecing on Dress Up Marci I cut about 6 stamped images including two from designer paper, shaped and layered them together.  It is still not as "shapely" as I would liked it to be, for some reason after a while some of the parts flattened, but I still like the result.  I really need to look for a different type of adhesive. 

This is one of the projects for my MARCH Workshop.
