Stencil storage box

Welcome back..... :)
Today, I'm sharing my second DT make for my recent Memory Maze post.. This one is special to me because I made this JUST FOR ME! :) 
So it's fun and girly.. :)  It's not very often that I make myself something special for my craft room, but I love the Memory Maze 8x8 stencils so much, I wanted something to display my growing collection.. 

I actually made this from scratch using the Memory Maze plain chipboard..
I've added the measurements in this photo for you incase you are inspired to do your own.. 
A good craft knife will only take about 2 or 3 cuts to completely slice through the thick chipboard pieces.. Make sure it's sharp and you have a good quality ruler, I recommend a metal one.. 

Next was covering the inside with paper and glueing the sides together.. 
I used a piece from the Prima "Almanac" collection.. 

I then covered the outside with paper (using Kaiser "True Romace" collection), laid down strips of washi tape and randomly spread some Gesso.. 

Next my favourite and very over used MM stencil "Pavers" and impasto paste were applied under a heat embossed beautiful mirror shaped MM chipboard..

Finally, plenty of embellishments including stunning custom bling pieces from Jan on the top corners and the magnificently stunnning Ballerina.. 
Plus - Kaiser Flowers, Bella bling swirls, Mirco Beads and small adhesive rhinestones.
