Monday

A quick decorated box....


A-quick-decorated-box

So I finally discovered how useful it is to have decorated boxes/gift wraps all done up and ready-to-use at a moment's notice. Especially when your mother always has something to give to someone....*winks*


Now all sturdy cardboard boxes will get decorated and stashed away in a designated drawer for my mum to pick and choose. Great way to use up scraps, do a little bit of upcycling and score brownie points with the matriarch. *LOL*


I love this silk bloom (previously a napkin ring holder) because it has adjustable petals so it is easy to tuck things under after you glue it down.


I didn't have enough patterned paper to cover the entire box so I created a "front" for the box and went a little crazy with the embellishments and my hot glue gun.


Not too shabby for something done in 20 minutes eh? :)

Happy week ahead friends!

Totally love this...was trying to decide if it once held pencils or what...but it's a really cool shape! I am sure she will love to have a drawer to pick from for gifts! THAT is smart thinking right there!

Your mom is one lucky lady to have your fabulous gift boxes ready at her disposal! :D This is stunning! Love the green paper and love all the white accents. The lace trim along the edges is gorgeous. Love the feathers and the pearl loops. That recycled flower and metal butterfly are awesome, too!
