Good morning to you all
Today is my first day to inspire you over at the
and I decided to do some up-cycling. This box arrived with lots of crafty goodies in it originally, but I needed a box to put a gift in, so using the recent release
here is what I made.
I started this box by adding a coat or two of gesso. I then added some gorgeous papers that I ordered through the Hobby House. I punched some white card with my MS edge punch and ran this around the edge at the top and bottom. I added some pearl strings from the Hobby House on to this. I ran the gorgeous ribbon around the box. I then added some liquid pearls around the punch work. On the top I added an array of flowers from Clickit4Crafts and a few odd ones from my stash. Those butterflies of course those new dies from Wild Rose Studio, in colours to match the ribbon butterflies. Finishing off with liquid pearl bodies, a sentiment and a couple of flourishes from the Hobby House. All links to shops are in my where I shop page.
This photo shows that the box was a little damaged from my eagerness to open it originally, however once the gift was in I could seal it down straight :)
Here is the top view with the array of summer coloured flowers.
Just a reminder, I have candy on offer at the moment, see my sidebar
