Recycled Matchbox

Hello Friends,

How are your days ? Mine very lazy. Was not in a mood to make post, though have few projects to share. So today I finally decided to share a recycled matchbox. I have transformed it into a gift box. This box is made as DT inspiration for the current challenge running at Color Conception Challenges. We are having "Trash to Treasure using Washi Tapes" theme this month. Do hop over to the blog to see the gorgeous projects made by our DTs.

Now over to my box. Here are some pics -

I have cut a small window and glued a acrylic sheet. I have also made some washi tape flowers. Actually every flower is of washi here. Added a acrylic handle with brads which can be used to pull out the box. The acrylic is recycled from a candy box. The inner box contains a sentiment.

Supplies Used - 
Washi Tapes - From CCC
Distress Inks - From CCC
Sentiment - Fiskars
Pearls - form stash
Die - Memory Box from Mansi

Entering it into -
BGC -Photo Inspiration + Anything Goes (My  inspiration is blue flowers and color of the photo)
Lessology Challenge - Packaging Central
Dream Valley Challenge - Make your own flowers or embellishments

Hope you liked it !!
Thanks a ton for stopping by :)
