"Beach Rules" - House Shrine Box by Kathy Clement

Hello, Friends! I don't know about you, but my soul has been longing for the sea. Summer is such a busy time around here with visits from dear friends, family birthdays and lots of deadlines for work. There's no time to escape to the coast, unless I do it on paper! Luckily for me, I had a wonderful little Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts House Shrine Box to work with, and I immediately thought "beach cottage!"

 I pulled out my Graphic 45 By the Sea papers and went to work building this darling little Beach Rules House Shrine to share with you today. Putting this one together was almost as good as a day at the shore, minus the sand in my shoes and wind in my hair.

 The finished box measures 4" x 8" x 1.5". The depth gives you lots of room to add lovely layers and 3-D embellies. I put together a Snapguide tutorial for you so that you can follow along and see how this all came together.
