This is used to be...Oil Bottle Box

Hello peeps,
As you can guess from the title what  i am sharing with you all today. Its an transformed oil bottle box. I have upcycled it into a gift box.
P.S - Picture Heavy Post


I have cut  a small window in the front and added acrylic sheet to it. On all the three sides, i have added brown embossed paper.  The patterned paper are left over scraps from old projects.


The blue flowers are handmade and those green one are boutique elements from itsy bitsy. The blue glitter strip is from itsy bitsy. I think they are superb for embellishing.

Have you noticed that cute froggy..this is from my SWALK stamp set. It is coloured using steadlers. The green cord is actually a recycled elastic from an old bracelet.

The bow is made from 1/4" wide satin ribbon

So this is the box which i actually transformed.
