Ooh la la!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Prima Style

I created a little shadow box using the Prima Back Stage papers (formerly Moulin Rouge), flowers, and laces. I glued one of the papers into the box (found in my craft closet) and added lace to the dresses, crumpled tissue paper to adorn the dancers' hats, and a funky chandelier found a while back at the dollar store. I added a vintage crystal cuff link to the chandelier.
I cut out a dancer from another paper and added trim for a necklace, crumpled tissue paper for her bodice, and cut apart a Prima flower to get the small flower at her breast.
I gave her a skirt of a silk scrap and mounted her inside the box
and added lace to the background and to the outside of the box
I finished with more Prima flowers, some vintage velvet flowrs, some Prima bling, and a tassel.

What a fun, totally frivolous project!
