At Craft Club we got 3 sheets of decopatch paper. I used one and a bit for my decopatch letters and the third I saved for this little box which I bought AGES ago and it has been sitting all forlorn on my shelf ever since.
I tried to be careful not to overlap too much as I wasn't sure I'd manage to cover it all. As it worked out I covered it all EXCEPT for the inside base, which I lined with black felt and also cut some felt tattered florals.
I edged the lid with some lace and then got to work with the hot glue gun (getting a lot of use at the moment). I sort of made up the design as I went along and it ended up quite a bit different to my draft!
I added 2 spare black felt flowers to the inside of the lid with some more of the white flowers I got at craft club too. At last my little box transformed. Now what to keep in it.
Just thought this might fit the May CountryView Challenge of, "How does your Garden Grow?"
Certainly very floral with my favourite butterfly or pili-pala as I like to call them now as I have learnt the Welsh word!
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.
