Pick A Posey

Hello my Classy Friends!

Diane here with you today with my project for Classy Cards 'n Such challenge this week, which is Pick A Posey.
I decided to "think outside the box", so to speak, and alter a cheese box for my project. I had a "laughing cow" cheese box on hand and I find these to be the perfect boxes to alter.

I started with my Graphic 45 Botanical Tea papers. These are the most beautiful papers to work with.

After my box was covered I used a Spellbinders Exquisite Circles die for my center doily.

My flower was made using a Susan's Garden Clematis die. If you have never used one of these dies, I have to say this line of dies is very, very easy to use and look "life like" when finished!

I colored my flower with PanPastels Flower Coloring Kit by Susan's Gardens, using the Magenta color and applied it with Sofft Covers Point Applicators.To shape my flowers I used Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and Paper Blossoms Craft Molding Mat.

I have a new Clematis this year  called "Nellie Moser" which I bought for the name alone. As my dogs name is Nellie, and though I don't have a picture of it, I can say it very much looks the color of this one. I do have a picture of a variety of my Clematis I want to share with you!

To finish my box, I die cut 3 Butterflies from the Joy! Crafts Butterfly Trio dies. I used a bit of cloth covered floral wire and mounted a butterfly "spiral" on my box. I added Pink Pearls to the butterfly. The other 2 butterflies were added to "flutter" around the box using Small Joy! Craft Foam.

This will be the perfect little gift box to hold some small trinkets! I invite YOU to join us in our challenge this week. We would LOVE to see your creation and you could even win a PRIZE!

What a lovely way to give a gift! Thanks Diane!

Diane, what a great way to re-purpose something. I love it when a something like this is a gift within a gift. This would be pretty on a dresser or shelf!

Your altered box is just beautiful. Your clematis is gorgeous, the petals almost look real.
