Recycled Wooden Box and Graphic 45

Hi everyone!  Well it is a new fortnight and that means a new challenge up at the Craft-Room Blog.  Esther is challenging us to recycle something for our projects.  I have had this round wooden box that held caramels around forever in the hopes of making it into something pretty.  When this challenge came up I knew it was a perfect time to use it. 



I used the Graphic 45 Collection called By the Sea to decorate my box along with some red cardstock for matting.  I inked the edges of the box with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.



 
I fussy cut out the sea shells and light house from the paper line and popped them up with pop dots.  I added glitter to the seashells.  The ribbon around the box top and the two bows are both from Really Reasonable Ribbon's May Ribbon Club kit.  The flowers are mulberry flowers from Etsy.  Finally the focal image is a vintage printable from Etsy.  I thought it fit perfectly with the theme.

I hope you will join us for our challenge.  Ali-Craft is the sponsor this challenge, and one lucky winner will get a wonderful prize from this company.  Have a wonderful week!
