She then surrounded the seashell flower with tiny pieces of stained glass and flat marbles.
She covered the sides of the hinged lid with stained glass pieces.
Alyssa covered the lower portion of the box with more seashells, pink stained glass, and marbles.
Once the box was covered, on to the grouting.
... which is definitely ... messy.
We let this dry for a little while and then sponged off the excess. The next day she sealed the grout with pearl white paint.
TA DA !!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AUNT AMY !!!
When ever Aunt Amy looks at this, she will see the seashells, and remember her wedding day. She will remember my little Alyssa, the shell girl. She will treasure this because, a sweet little girl took the time to make a gift by hand, that truly comes from the heart.
My baby is so smart and so crafty.!!
