Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Coffee Grinder

I found this old timey coffee grinder in a thrift shop awhile back. I knew G45 paper was in order, but wasn’t sure which line. Then ….. BEHOLD…. Botanical Tea!  Swoon! I just can’t stop using this one! It very well may be….my favorite line to date! There , I said it :)
Anyways I crackle painted the top rounded bowl grinder. The rest was covered with paper! Add some spanish moss to the top and decorate your nest however you want! I had a start to finish on this, unfortunately the video file was 'corrupted.' If you have any questions , I’d be glad to help :)

Sweet Sentiments Valentines Chocolate Box

Hey lovely ladies!!! Here with a Vday project! While browsing the selection of heart boxes for V-day, I came across a box covered in ruffled velvet! I knew I had to mimic it! Paper is very easy to manipulate, and doing these crinkly effects are around a lot lately! Wasn't sure if I could manage doing it in this fashion, but it worked very easily! I also have included a video tutorial. Make sure to check out the BLOG to see Arlene's stunning box as well!  Happy Valentines Day everyone :)
