recycled box

I found this box a couple of weeks ago hanging around on the top shelf of the cupboard (you know the one your hubby puts the choccies on cos you can't reach it lol) and shockingly it still had a couple of choccies left in it left over from Christmas.......well it would be rude to leave them there, they might go off or anything lol
When I saw the Steam Funk download from Funky Hand I just knew it would suit the shape of the box. So I used the clock paper to cover it then added a trim of some lace round the rim of the box, the flower is made with layers of circles scrumched up and battered about a bit (broke my heart doing that I can tell you lol) The pearls and the pins were from my stash box. I almost used it last week as a gift box but I just couldn't part with it!! I am thinking it might look nice on my dressing table for earrings or something :o)

Paper Play ~ Lovely Lace
Moving along with the times ~ bloomin marvellous
Cupcake Craft ~ recycle

So I empied it and decided it would be good for decorating :o)
