Yellow Rose Gift Box

Hi all, I'm back with another project, an altered box with floral punch flowers.  A friend gave me several cute soap boxes to alter and give new life to.  I covered up all the writing on the box with layered panels and that still left a lot of the boxes original colors and beautiful paper covering.  Next I made the yellow roses and buds using the begonia punch from Punch Bunch. 

I added some Stickles in the center of the roses for sparkle and dew drops with Crystal Effects.  The floral stems of lacey white was made with a mini snowflake punch also from Punch Bunch.  I stamped "faith" and "hope" on the front and back panels, pearls, creamy double bow and flourishes from Spellbinders to finished up.

It is a fun and quick recycle project and the gift box is a gift in itself! You will see more of the little boxes in the future, I so much fun making this one.  Back later with another card that I made for an online course that I am taking.

EDIT TO ADD:  Had a question about where I got the soap boxes, a friend gave them to me and I believe that she purchased the "designer" gift soaps w/boxes from Marshall's.  So look over those sale aisles in these types of stores, you never will know what you will find that can be altered!


Comments are always welcome, I love hearing from all of you!! Post links to your recycled/altered projects in your comments!
