Boxed Beauty Inspiration for Crafty Ribbons

Good morning to you all

Today is my chosen day to inspire you for 


So I am hoping to inspire you to use up your old boxes, this piece originally started with an old MDF box that I was given, the side had broken off so I need to glue it back together, I do so love up-cycling


I just could not resist using those gorgeous Wedding Owl ribbons, although this was not created for a wedding, so just shows you how versatile the ribbons are

Wedding Owl Ribbon - With Love Bridal White

Wedding Owl Ribbon - BELIEVE Bridal White

I gave the MDF a coat of gesso, before adding some lovely papers I ordered from the Hobby House.  I then added some lace from Grimsby Crafts.  I added lots of pearl strings and a pearl flourish from the Hobby House, before adorning with that gorgeous ribbon.  

 I finished off with an assortment of flowers from Clickit4Crafts, Wild Orchid Crafts and ebay :) all in white and creams.


I would like to take a moment to say hello to all my new followers and thank all of my visitors for their wonderful comments, which allows me to hop over and visit you in return.

Don't forget I still have candy running in the side bar :)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges
Crafting at the Weekend - Anything Goes
Creative Corner - Love of Ribbon
Wags N Whispers - Anything Goes
