Hello everyone!! I have a wooden trunk that I purchased at Michael's that I would like to share with you. The trunk was a unfinished wooden trunk when purchased with no paint or paper adhered to it. I first painted it all over with Burnt Umber (which is a dark brown color) acrylic paint. I then added the lace trims to the sides of the trunk. I purchased the lace trims at Walmart. I added the flowers next, some of which are I Am Roses, some are cut from my cricut machine using the Flower Shoppe cartridge, and some are flower punches from my EK Success punch. I then added a Recollection butterfly and a Michael's dollar bin frame. I painted the frame with vintage white, then used rubbed Rub N Buff across it with my finger, then added Distress Ink Victorian Velvet to give it a light pink look. I added I Am Roses to the top of it and cut out a fairy from the Fairy Belle paper collection by Prima. I then cut out the word Create from the Sophisticated cricut cartridge using the French Country Stack by DCWV. I also added a butterfly from the Martha Stewart butterfly punch using the same paper collection and added two flat back pearls to the body of the butterfly. On the front of the trunk I added more I Am Roses and wheat sprays from the Etsy shop Discount Crafts 1 to the latch. More I Am Roses were added to the trim on the front and back of the trunk. I plan to use the trunk to store all of my homemade cards as I have quite a few of them. I hope you enjoy this project as much as I enjoyed altering it. Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
