7G Trousseau "tea-chest"...

I revamped this wooden box. its about 6x6x6 inches....
I used the 7 Gypsies Trousseau paper, a Lewis Carroll quote from the graphic 45 papers, a K&Co Key, a rusty heart and some versamagic inks. the drawer pull on the front, is a flea market find.


  1. Hi Louise you have certainly been very crafty this week x tried to leave comments on Monday but word verification a problem. Anyway...... I love your style and the creations this week very inspirational...... Brilliant idea re beer mats....hope you don't mind me using them too ? Crafty hugs Annie x

    1. I didnt think I had the word verification turned on but then blogger tens to act up a lot anyway and commenting can be a chore...

      Making mini albums out of beer mats is not my own idea Annie... its been going around for a while so you feel completely free to give it a go... the full tutorial is over at the calico craft blog and you can apply it to any papers and add your own embellishments etc... it can be fun to send a beer mat to each of your crafty friends and ask them to alter it for you in a swap... then make a book out of all the returned altered mats. :)

  2. The box is amazing but the drawer pull...omg..just love it. Cooool find (:o)

  3. wow this is fabulous. Gorgeous.

  4. Hi Louise, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  5. Wow Zuzu, you are really on a role with these gorgeous papers! Another great project!! I think these papers look as if they will be my fav 7 Gypsies collection, - I can feel an order to Callico Crafts coming on.....
