Box Full of Ballerinas

Hi everyone, Nancy Keslin here today to share with you a project I made using some of the beautiful products from the Hydrangea Hippo etsy shop.

When I saw the cute ballerinas I just knew I had to have them.  As the mom of two daughters I have spent a fair bit of time at ballet class and recitals and have dozens of photos to show for it.  What could be more fun than an exploding box.

I placed the ballerinas in a circle of metal roses dancing around a “tree” made from both brown and blue beaded sprays.  A bit of orange elastic trim completed the top of my box.

Persimmon dangle beads form the feet of my little treasure trove of photos.  And a vintage black button finishes it off.

I can't wait to surprise my oldest with this little box.  I am sure she will love looking at the photos inside.

Thanks for stopping by today.
