I hope everyone is having a great week! I am really loving this Florida weather. It is hard to believe it is almost the middle of November. I hope you will join us over at Midweek Magnolia's challenge "Flourishes".
I have decided to decorate my sitting room for Christmas shabby chic - ocean theme. My son and his wife have been buying me a sea theme ornament for Christmas and I found a white flocked twig Christmas tree that would be perfect.
I found this star shaped box at Hobby Lobby and wasn't quite sure what I would created. Then I found these beautiful large starfish. Thus decided this would be perfect for my ocean theme. Below I have given the steps I used to create my box.
A great gift box.
The tag can also be used as an ornament

I painted the box with Gesso, applied Tim Holtz tissue paper with Modge Podge. Once this was dry I sponged the edges of the star with Prima Bloom Spray - Gold Foil, Pressed Petal and Glistening Waves then I glued the floral trim. The box cover, tag, bottom of the box were sprayed with the Gold Foil spray. The starfish was sprayed with Glistening Waves. I used Magnolia Doohickey poinsettia dies and Cherry Lynn large and small flourish. The stamp is Tilda with Candle from Magnolia. I colored her with Copic Markers, used some shabby white frantage to give her a little sparkle and on her flower band I used Perfect Pearls for the center of the flower. I used Prima wooden embellishments and painted them Viva Decor Gold paint. To complete my design I added pearl bling, netting, tulle, raffia.
