Fun colour combo on an upcycled mooncake box


This was one of the loveliest mooncake boxes I'd gotten this year. The aqua box opens up via a pull-out drawer.  I decided to use a fun colour combo to decorate the mooncake box.:)

For the cover of the box, I created a "frame" with patterned paper and added a decorative lace plus pearl trim border before embellishing with pretty embellishments.

It was a fairly quick project since I used patterned papers from a DCWV stack (everything is coordinated). I just picked the ones I wanted, cut them to size and run them pieces through my Xyron Creative Station for an even layer of adhesive.

Then I whipped out my hot glue gun and just went crazy with the embellishing. I'm glad I was a little adventurous with this fun colour combo....those pops of yellow just make me happy! *winks*

That moon cake box is very lucky that you made it even better after all the cakes were gone. Your color choices and embellishments are super attractive together. May the people of the world never throw out a sturdy, clean box. LOL!
