Trash to Treasure
Good morning blogging friends. Today I want to share with you an altered nut tin that I did for the challenge over at Joan's Gardens. Each week she has a challenge and has a nice gift if you are the winner. You can go on over to Joan's blog to check all the details. She has a great shop for lots of wonderful items and everything arrives in pristine condition!
The challenge this week called for:
Recycle a box (round)
Color theme is whatever you like
Use some lace
Use some pearls and flowers
I think I covered all the bases. I used a nut tin and covered it with pretty paper and added lace to the edge of the lid and the bottom of the box. Then I took flowers and leaves and sprayed them with shimmer spray and glued them to the top. Next came the sprinkling of pearls all over the empty spaces on the top of the box. Not difficult at all. Tuck a little gift inside and give it to a friend or sit it on a table for display. I might just keep this one!
Why don't you join in the challenge! It is always fun and you can enter more than once in Joan's challenges. This would be the perfect opportunity to make something beautiful out of something you would normally discard.
I'm also entering this in the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge.
Well that is it for me this morning. I hope you have a great day and a wonderful weekend. And remember to breathe!
