The Designer Crafts Connection group is hosting a blog hop that is sponsored by Little Birdie this month. The above decoupage trinket box is what I made with the supplies Little Birdie provided. I really enjoyed the creative process of making the trinket box and I added a few parts as I was creating that I had not originally envisioned. These additions were the stenciling and the feet. I am excited to see what the other designers made since I believe we all received different materials to work with.
The box contained two coasters, two packs of the decoupage paper, Deco Magic in matte and glossy, and Varnish.

To begin, I mixed ivory chalk paint and blue together for the inside of the box.
I painted one coat inside.
The outside I covered in one coat of the chalk paint.
I began to decoupage over the outside painted surface, one side at a time.
After each side was decoupaged under and over the paper, and it had dried, I cut the paper for the opening.
I then decoupaged the inside of the box.
Note, the edges are messed up but they get fixed before I finish the box.
I stenciled the light blue color on the top of the box.
This hints at the inside color.
The focal image was fussy cut from the decoupage paper and added to the top of the box, then the entire box was covered three times with the decoupage glue.
I decided to add feet to the box and painted beads to match with blue paint and then sealed them with the decoupage glue.
Using mixed media glue, I added them to the bottom of the box.
Here is the inside of the finished box.
Notice those edges are all cleaned up!
This might be my favorite part of the trinket box.
Here is the finished box from the side.
I really think those feet are a great addition.
