Hello Ruby Rock-it Fans!  Alicia here with you today!
You may have noticed that I really like to make off the page projects, and I have them all over my house. People sometimes ask why I make them and what I do with all the things that I make. While some of them are purely decorative, I also really like to make pieces that are functional. I often like to go to the thrift store to pick up (mostly timber) household items that I can repurpose. I once turned a toaster into a photo frame. Sometimes I make things for table centrepieces, or to hold sweet treats. 
This month I already made a hanging ribbon cabinet for my daughter. Today I would like to share another project I have made to match. This is to house all of my daughters hair clips. 


This is a little timber house shaped cabinet I found at the thrift store (like most of my finds). I got this for a bargain $4. It had some pretty ugly bears on it, so I removed those and covered the whole thing in lots of gesso to get a blank canvas. 

I made the roof with lots of rows of edge punched paper with some lace trim through the top.

Apart from the sides and roof, the rest of the project was completed using the matching embellishments only. The floral piece is cut from the die cut pad,. The smaller size print was perfect for this project.

Another element from the die cut pad, with a 3D butterfly sticker layered over the top.
