Altered Flower Box

Well this is my project from this afternoon. I have altered a flowerbox which I received a lovely bunch of flowers in from my colleagues at work. As I was sorting the flowers out to go in the bin I thought it was a shame to throw the box out too as it is very strong. Therefore as it is my sisters birthday at the weekend I thought it would be nice to use as the box for her present, however I though it would be better if it had my twist on. Mind you I did have a few happy accidents along the way but I am pleased with the way it has turned out now. It seems to be my time for happy accidents at the moment lol.

This is the box as it was before:

And as it is now:

  • Papers: Shabby Princess
  • Flowers: Petaloo Mulberry Embossed Flowers
  • Brads: Stash
  • Card: Gold Mirror - Stash
  • Ribbon: Dovecraft
  • Sentiment: Computerised
  • Tools: Cuttlebug, nestabilities

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs Rachel xx
