Another box!

Just couldn't help myself:
the lid - do you like the crepe flower under the prima one?  see I did get to use them after all!

Box front - couldnt resist doing another crepe paper flower and a little journey bunting - so cute - made it using a quickutz tag die and alphabet stamps and my new addiction - candy striped string.

The sides (both are the same)

The back - left this a bit plain as I will not really get chance to look at it as the box will be kept on my desk!

an arty aerial view which isnt really that arty with my desk in the background! - lid looks a bit bent now though although it doesnt look too bad in real life - might bend it back into shape if I can - if you hear a scream it all went horribly wrong!

Used scattered straw, antique linen and tea dye distress ink to blend and stamp, Lavinia, Paperartsy, and Crafty Individuals stamps, Prima flowers, Crepe paper, Leaf punch, candy string, dyed some white ribbon with tea dye ink to match, Tim's birdcage die with gold embossing powder, old book pages, a doily, sequin waste and some bling.

Hope you like it - box is 6" x 6" square and stores my glimmer mists!
I am going to enter this into a couple of challenges:
http://creativeinspirationschallenge.blogspot.com/ whose theme is "recycle element on project" - I am hoping that sequin waste, dyed ribbon and a doily count as recycled elements here although I have to admit that the doily is new and hasnt had a coffee cup or glass of wine anywhere near it!

Thanks for looking :)

Hi. I am sllloooowwwwly making WOYWW rounds, and while, I didn't find your WOYWW post, I sort of am happier that I came across today's. I really like that box.
I am on some kind of bird/birdcage kick lately and feel inspired by what you've done here.
