Playing with Construction Paper…Towels

I’ve recently been dabbling with paper towels (more specifically, the construction grade towels from Home Depot.)  Here’s an altered vintage metal box that I created using clear stamps (Romantic Botanicals available at Crescendoh) designed by the wonderfully talented, Rachel Emilie Jackson.

You can find the how-to instructions over at the gallery at Crescendoh, the source of this beautiful photo BTW.

On a separate note, I’m just putting the finishing touches on a few things for my next giveaway.  Hopefully, I’ll have them ready and posted by this coming Friday.
