Winter White Flower Jack in the Box


This Jack in the Box is my submission for the Paper Mache Artisans Webshow A winter white flower pops out of her ice blue paper mache box on a cold snowy day.

She is made using ivory velvet & silk flower petals and sprinkled with mica flakes with sprigs of vintage flower puffs. The box sparkles with silver glitter painted in an ice blue hue with a trim of white and silver double tubular tulle ribbon. Sprigs of vintage flower puffs and flocked greenery adorn the base of the box while a tiny blue bird rests on a blue velvet pad ornament on the top of the box. Box measures 11 1/2"h x 5 1/2"w open. $180
