Just Magnolia

Good afternoon ladies, are you having a good day? here it hot, humid and very dusty again, so no doubt I will have half the desert in my house again agggg, a good excuse not to do the dusting lol.

Today I want to show you my very first altered item, I did this for a friends Birthday and I am going to fill it with Body Shop goodies that she likes, I am also entering it in to Just magnolia Challenge.

It started out as a plain green box I had knocking around and covered the base in stripie paper and covered each join with chocolate brown ribbon to hide the joins, then added lace to trim.
I did the same for the inside but used a spotty paer to coordinate with the strips.

The inside of the lid I used the same papers, lace and ribbons as the inside.

The lid I decorated with a Magnolis stamped image which was coloured with Copic and Sakura gell pen.
The papers are Bo Bunny and the ribbon, lace and pin are from down the souk, the flowers are from my stash.

I have to say I am quiet pleased with the results even though it took me 3 days to complete but I did enjoy the challenge and I will definitely to another one. Hope you like it.
Thanks for popping by my place again as I do look forward to your visits.
