Pretty Up A Box

Friday, January 27, 2012



Check out my Flower Box that I made for Lessology Challenge #10 - Floral Delight. I must admit that I can't make pretty flowers like my fellow dt member Julie (love her flowers) ... so ... I decided to "pretty up" my flowers for this project. {I need a flower lesson Julie...just sayin'...LOL}


I used coffee filters to make a scallop shape to peek out from behind the flowers. I also rolled small pieces of coffee filter to place next to each flower. I think it dresses it up quite a bit.

I love to "dress up" small kraft boxes so I must make more of these. I hope to see you all play along with us! The fabulous Vintage Street Market is our sponsor. Be sure to {click here} to visit the LESSology blog for all of the details.

Supplies:
Patterned Paper (My Mind's Eye - Blush "Sweet" Eiffel); Flowers (Prima); Ribbon (Celebrate It); Misc. Supplies (kraft box, coffee filters)

I love, love, love your flowers! And how clever to use a coffee filter. I hope you don't mind if I steal that idea at some point. Just remember that imitation is the highest form of flattery!!
