GIBBS 3 Swap

I had joined the GIBBS 3 swap in the Cricut message board and have been creating these handmade items for the past three month. My partner was Dianne, and she also sent me a fabulous box filled with equally fabulous goodies. Here's the link:
I bought a Steampunk-inspired trunk from HL and attached a couple of tags to it to contain everything that I was sending.

The theme for the second day was "What Was I Thinking". I altered a shadow box for that day. I made grunge roses and covered the interior with paper from Graphic45. The chair is from the Summer in Paris cart, cut at 4 1/2" and embellished with Liquid Pearls. The lamp post is from Heritage, cut at 6 1/2". The lace, pearls and crystals are all from Prima. The theme for this piece is "Love and Marriage".

Day 3 is "Button It". I made napkin rings out of paper towels and covered it with paper from Tim Coffey for K&Co. Lace and wood buttons tied with twine were used to embellish them.
