Altered box

Hello my crafty friends! I hope your week has been good so far. I had a long and pretty stressful Monday, but now thins are calming down a little. But luckily the weekend is just around the corner.

A new challenge just started at Crafty ribbons blog and this time we want to see your round creations. My first thought was to make a round card, but I don't really have any big(ger) round dies, so I thanged my mind and decided to alter a round box.

I went to the craft store and bought a small white round box which I was going to decorate. The whole box was originally plain white so I used some beautiful patterned papers to cover it. I left the inside white, but other than that I covered the whole box with lots of pretty embellishments. 

First I decorated the lid. To do that I used TH harlequin stencil, home-made texture paste (I used Pamellia's recipe - thank you for sharing it girl!!), doily, lots of flowers, pearl string, lace, buttons and beads. And a butterfly - of course. ;)

I think some flowers are from Wild orchid crafts and the others are from my stash. Butterfly was stamped with multi coloured ink pad and cut out with my scissors. Buttons, doily, pearl string and beads came from my stash. All of the lace is from Crafty ribbons.

I also made a video about this project. Feel free to check it out if you want to. 

Anways, that's all from me today. I hope you'll come play with us. I would love to see your round projects. :)

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs! xx
