Altered Box & What's Blooming In Your Garden 3

I was up at 3 am.......so as not to waste my time
I decided to do a project!
This summer Joan's Gardens is having weekly guest tutorials
This week it is Glenda from Magpies Corner......
Her tutorial was to make an altered box...you can go to Joan's Gardens for all the information
I chose to use one of my many paper mache boxes I have......
I used a mixture of Tim Holtz & Tattered Angels mists......
my flowers were cut on my Cricut in 3 various sizes......
but I used my flower kit I purchased from Joan to shape them...
the center of the flowers were embossed with TH tea die embossing powder
I did add lace on the rim under the butterflies...its just hard to see..... 


it took me about 3 hours to complete........
I love how my box turned out!!

The flowers are this weeks pictures of what's blooming right now...enjoy!
for a better view, just click on the photos
