Pencil Box - Inspired by Michelle Webb

I've been a fan of Paper Artsy stamps for a long time, and I have a fair few, I also follow Leandra on Twitter and she's been teasing us with guest designers on her blog.  This week it was the wonderfully talented Michelle Webb, who did a number of projects including a Papier Mache pencil box, which I just happened to have lying around waiting for the opportunity to do something with.

I used Paper Artsy stamps, but all other materials are from my stash as I have not yet delved fully into paints etc, I currently use the Do Crafts Acrylics which do me for now, till I build my confidence and skill level.

The Function of the box - to hold things to decorate with

I am entering this into the Paper Arty - what I was inspired to make this week spot, but I would confess, it's probably no where near the best you will see entered here, but I gave it a go.
