Altered pan pastel box

Morning everyone.
I hope you have beautiful sunshine.
The garden is looking wonderful and everywhere I look there is something budding into life.
Don't you just love this time of year ?
Thank you all for the wonderful comments and thank you clicks yesterday it is very much appreciated.
Today I have for you a box I have altered for the Allsorts challenge.
Nothing much but I am quite pleased with it and I adore this colour combo.
So fresh and bright.
It is the box my Pan Pastel trial set arrived in.
Nice sturdy little box that was begging to be changed into a gift box.
For now it just has some of my pens in but looks mighty pretty sitting in front of me.
I have covered it with a pretty 12 x 12 paper from doodle bug called 934 daisy doodles.
Inside is covered with plain white paper and stamped with Thank you bunches from the bottom of my heart.
Added a beautiful yellow ribbon and made a bow in the same ribbon.
The tails tie underneath. The flowers are from poundland (gotta love cheap crafty goodies) and I have added some gems and candi to finish it off.

Lastly, for or anyone looking for pretty ribbons then be sure to pop on over to The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop as they are having a giveaway and let's face it, who doesn't like the chance at free pretties.

Thank you for looking :)

  1. Dare I say that we also have lovely sunshine this morning Julie and very welcome it is as well. In fact hubby has taken a day our from the office to catch up on some well overdue gardening - with two acres it soon gets on top of you and the weather really hasn't been good enough to get much done so far.

    Your altered box is very pretty and has a lovely fresh springtime feel to it especially that floaty yellow ribbon.

    Thanks so much sharing with us at Allsorts and Pretty Little Ribbons Challenges.
