Altered Gumball Machine

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a blessed Turkey DAy! i must have gained 50 pounds :) Lol!
I'm here today to share with you my project for The Piece By Piece etsy store. Bev has the most amazing laces! I have been wanting to alter one of these for the longest time! Ever since i saw one on Pinterest by an extremely talented lady! Her's is amazing! All inspiration comes from this piece. I wanted to make it my own though, and i Had so much fun with it! Although it is quite shabby chic, i added lots of mixed media twists to it. I used G45 papers too :)
The trims I used are this, this, and this. And also this birds nest.
