Trash To Treasure

Good morning all. I hope you are all fit and well.
Here we are at the end of June which means that we have a new challenge over at Natalie and Amy’s

This month the theme for our challenge has been chosen by Wendy and her choice is …….

Trash to Treasure

Yes we would like to see you turn those unwanted items into something gorgeous.

As usual the prize for this month is a £15 gift voucher to spend in the store.

I must admit I tend to struggle for ideas with this type of challenge, but I decided to make a pretty box using an old tea bag box.

And a couple of hours later....

These are the items I used from Natalie and Amy’s shop

Marianne Design Pearl Swirls;

Hampton Art - Diffusion Cling Stamps - Crowning Moments ;

Kaisercraft Clear texture stamp - Script

The delicious papers are from Katiet Pertiet  - Letterbox Garden Song
The butterfly was enamelled using Stampendous Fran~tage Shabby white – I love this stuff!
The lace and pearl trim were from my stash.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges
