Flower Garden Ribbon Box

I needed something to store my loose ribbons in and have had this shoe box sitting around for a while now (never throw anything away, it may come in handy). I set about covering it with paper & making holes in the side (need to make a few more too). I was wondering what to decorate it with when my local craft group asked me to demonstrate some of the flowers I make. What better way of showing the finished product than making a “garden of flowers” on top of my box. I didnt take a picture of the “before” which I should have done so picture a shoe box here – you can all do that, right, lol. Here is the “after”:

This box fits into a number of challenges:
Creative Inspirations – Anything but a card
Raise the Bar – April Fool, a style you dont normally do
Paper Makeup Stamps – Be inspired by the sun (sun brings up the flowers 🙂 )
Allsorts Challenge blog – Alter or recycle something
The Character Cafe – Anything but a card
The Secret Crafter – Pink, Green & Flowers
Charisma Cardz – Spring has sprung
Cute Card Thursday – Dimensions

Ingredients
Shoe Box

    Ang what a beautiful altered item you have here! I too am an earthy crunchy type of person who has a hard time getting rid of packaging and good boxes. Wonderful idea to do a ribbon holder, your flowers are so delightful and well displayed! Thank you so much for joining us at Raise The Bar this week!
