Pride and Prejudice - Book Box for Happy Daze





Over on Happy Daze blog today I have decorated a papier mache book box to look like an old leather Jane Austen book, using the Artistic Outpost 'Jane's Countryside' set, and a charity shop copy of Pride and Prejudice.

And lots of gold embossing powder!



I am entering this into the Artistic Outpost April Referral Programme, You can get their stamps from them if you are in the US, or from Happy Daze if you are in the UK.
