Elegant Chic Trim Organizer

Even though I'm not exactly the most organized person in the world in a lot of ways, I LOVE organizers!! Lynne here with my version of the trim organizer from Gina's store. My scraproom is painted pale grey, so these FabScraps papers were perfect for this project.

After assembling the box (which is delightfully easy!) and papering it all, I sanded the edges, then inked them with Ranger distress ink in Weathered Wood. After adding a strip of lace and the word tag, I painted the Feathery Flourishes and the wooden beads (which were used for feet) with acrylic paint and attached them, then finished the project with strands of clear iridescent pearls.

The cards were papered and inked with the same products, then I had fun filling them with some gorgeous laces and trims from my stash (which incidentally freed up a drawer for more chippies! yay me!)

I kept the decoration of my organizer fairly simple, but the sky's the limit! You could use any papers or mediums to cover it, and you could add all sorts of different embellishments to create any look you want. I hope you stop by Gina's store to have a look at this and other great organizers! Have a terrific week!
