Altered Gift Box

OMG! I just realised that This altered notebook got selected as winner at CCCB's challenge for week 23!! woo hoo!!! Thank you CCCB!! :)

Here's a lil altered gift box I made for my dear crafty fren Jessy's birthday recently. I do hope she likes the lil pressie from me. The box was handmade by yours truly using a very very simple recipe. Drop me a message if you'd like to know how to make this with ease ;)

After that I embellished it using my favs! Hanging sign die cut, Butterflies, Flowers & my recent awesome find at the local haberdashery, 2 1/2 inch Jute ribbon!! The flower is handmade using a paper doily that was distressed to my heart's content lol.. :)

I love dabbling with altered projects! Once is was completed, I realised it was so suited for CCCB's challenge this week, which is to use flowers & here for further details on the challenge..
