Basket of flowers!

Hello friends! I hope you week is starting off good and you are well. Here is a recycled project. The box I used for this project was a box filled with chocolate candy. This was a Christmas present from my friend. I keep the box after all the chocolate was gone and I adhered some pretty pattern paper to it:). This box was too nice to trash it. Don't you think so too? I used Mod Podge Gloss -Lustre to adhered paper to box and I painted the Mod Podge all over the pattern paper to give the paper a glossy shine:) I used gems, gold crafts wire, brass finished fasteners and puffy paint to embellish flowers and basket. I used pop dots to give the flowers and basket some dimension.

The pattern paper is from the Yearbook Paper pad. This paper is so pretty! The solid paper is Recollections card stock. I used Doodlecharms flower on page#91 and the basket is on page #116. flowers cut @ 2 inch and basket @ 2 7/8 inch. I used Design Studio so I could cut them to fit the box.

Here is the box before I decorated it and the top is after:) I love the outcome of this project! I just love it:)
This project is for these challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #53 to use a Spring time theme.
Paper Playtime Challenge #42 anything goes.
Jitterbuggin Challenge to add a Cricut flower to project.
Frosted Designs challenge to reuse or repurpose things you already have around the house!
