Gift box

I know I am supposed to be doing the background from my canvas for my painting class tomorrow, but I cannot resist altering this empty box that I found when we packed our storeroom during spring cleaning for cny.

I altered this box for Peachy Keen Lets face it friday - think spring (handmade gifts), I do hope my altered box qualifies for "handmade gifts".

Here is my altered box :-

 The original box  

 The cover of the gift box

 I layered cut-out from mulberry paper over cut-out from paper foam to achieve a 3 d effect for the flower

 I stamped the heart with PK cute faces and pasted them over the flowers

The inside of the cover

Materials used :

1.  Peachy Keen PK-159 - Simple simons for the flower,  PK 490 everyday character face, 3/8" for the hearts and 1" for the flower on the inside of the cover
2. Pattern paper : DCWV spring flowers stack, cardstock : DCWV brights
3.  Sizzix dies
4.  Spellbinders nestibilities
5.  Sentiments stamp : Just for you - Elzybells
6.  Stickles : yellow

Thanks for dropping by :-)
