Vagabond Box

By Olga Heldwein

“Today I prepared an altered piece. I used French Country – Collector’s Editon. It’s a great vintage collection with lots of country themed images and amazing patterns. It has a super user-friendly collection palette and you can create tons of different projects with this one. As Easter is coming I would like to mention that this one will be perfect for vintage Easter and spring-themed creations.

I really love how this piece tuned out but I had a bit of struggle with this project – like we all do sometimes. I didn’t give up only because I didn't want to waste papers as they fit me perfectly.

If you want to check out creative process of making this one I have prepared a video tutorial for you .” ~Olga
