Vintage Looking Box

    Aloha and Happy Monday! You read that right I am here in Hawaii while my daughter has some surgery done. Hopefully all goes well today.
I hope you all had a chance to hop along with Erica's Team over the weekend. Oh such talented ladies! If not, be sure to check out the 100 Cart Blog Hop on her blog:
     Today the Design Team was asked to show you projects using the Imagine, E2 or CCR, I chose to use the Imagine and the Imagine More Cards cartridge.
     Isn't this a beautiful box? The image is in the Bonus Content section on page 28. I chose to make this at fit to page and used the colors just as the are. I did use my crop a dile to make a hole and finished with an eyelet to string my ribbon through. Now the fun begins. I took a scrap piece of lace and used a running stitch to gather the lace into a "flower". I had a small fabric rose left over from some project so I thought this went really well with the colors in this box and added it to the center of my "flower".
     I had a rather odd "pearl" so I added that to the flap for a little extra bling. Of course I couldn't stop there!  I have so many beads from different projects that I thought I'd try my hand at a stick pin. Oh I love how this looks! I had to use some glue dots to adhere it.
     I even had a small charm that says "Made With Love". I really love how this came out. My best friends' birthday is in the middle of March so I made this with her in mind. I just have to figure out what to put in it, lol.
     Be sure to checkout what the rest of the Design Team has to show you today. You can find them here:
