Give Thanks for Unknown Blessings

Hello Friends ,

Today I have a project  to share . I had this very sturdy plain box with me for long. With Xmas coming up, I thought of decorating it .

I have decorated it with loads of PP , beads, ribbons, flowers .

The Theme I had in mind was Thanks Giving - We should always thank God for the Unknown blessings he showers on Us.

The flap with the Bling
The Rear view

I cut all the PP according to size , distressed the edges and pasted over the box. Once over the edges were not looking so good . I then took the ribbon from my stash and went around the borders. It looked wow !!

Then I embellished it with Die cuts, the birdie chipboard , flowers and corner ornaments ..
The Birdie - Momma and Kiddie   <3

The Inside was Lined using a lace . To add bling to it I added another layer of Bead hanging lace too. The pic is not so clear though. The base has a cardstock with " Give Thanks for Unknown Blessings " stamped and placed it inside the box base ..

I wanted to place a big button as opener . But as I went through my stash , found this cut little yellow ribbon floral bow kind and was sure I wanted this here :)

Materials used :

1.DCWV PP - Itsy Bitsy

2.Birde chip board  - Itsy Bitsy

3. Rectangle Frame - Joy! Crafts - Cutting & Embossing Die -  (Priya Shivraj)

4.Oval Die - Itsy Bitsy

5.Flowers , Beads and Ribbons from my stash

Happy Creating and Up-cycling !!
