Travel Trinket Box by Mary

Hello folks! Today I have Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts' Trinket Box! I fell in love with a globe nob at my local craft store and knew what I wanted to do with it. This box is perfect to hold some of the treasures from my travels.
After the box was completed, I painted all the edges with a dark brown acrylic paint. Once dry, the lid and sides (both in and out) where covered with travel themed paper which I had distressed. The "Enjoy the Journey" from the Travel Shape Set was embossed in brown. The compass was embossed in gold and a pinch of black. I also used distress ink on the compass to try and give it a more antique gold look. The two pictures are from my trip to Ireland and are up on pop-dots.

The side pieces were all embossed with the exception of the plane. I painted the plane brown and then sanded some of the painted off for a more distressed feel.
The inside of the box was lined with the same paper as the lid. It will be fun to fill it with my little treasures!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!
