Just Magnolia Monthly Challenge.....


Hello,

Today we have our very first Monthly Challenge at Just Magnolia. The challenge for this month is to alter a container. This can be anything from a bag to a box which is what I have chosen to altered.

Here is my box I have covered it with PM paper and then distressed the paper with vintage photo.


My little image has been coloured with distress inks and die cut using my nesties then I added stickles around the edge.

This is the top of my box I have added feathers, flowers which I glimmer misted and some tulle. I then stuck on some pearl decoration and crafting floss and a heart charm from the sweet and ever so generous Bev (mwah Bev xxx).

I added lace and tulle around the box and then I have used the Magnolia heart lock on back.

Thank you so much for looking and do go and see the other creations that the dt have made they are drool worthy!

Have a great day!

love
