Tuesday

Treasure the sweetness of life...a repurposed box


Treasure sweetness

Happy Tuesday! Hope you are treasuring the sweetness that is life...:) Today, I sharing what I made for my friend Lynnda. :) [Yes, it's nearing the end of the year and I'm trying desperately to clear the boxes I've accumulated...what better way than to upcycle them right?]

I basically worked on a corrugated sheet of paper (measured to fit inside the box) like a layout and used the box as a "shadowbox". Just a lot of layering...some patterned paper, punchinella, paper and crochet doilies, pearls, tulle, lace, trim, chipboard (misted), buttons, paper roses, brads, thickers and stickers. I love that the box has a nice metallic sheen on it...I just repurposed it without any alterations to it...gotta love that! :)
