Hello and thank you for joining us for the MB's Treasurista Winter Wonderland Blog Hop. I'm so happy you can join me in our first ever MB's Treasurista DT Exclusive blog hop! This is also the debut of my Design Team. Woohoo!!! :) I can't wait for you to see what these girls can do.
There are some amazing ladies on this hop so please make sure you visit all the stops. You won't want to miss a thing. Ok now on to my project.....
I'm so excited about this project as i have never altered a Michael's Balsa Box from the dollar bin. I painted it with white acrylic paint, then i used the awesome Iced Spruce Distress Ink from the new winter limited edition Distress Inks by Tim Holtz. Then covered the top and back with matte mod podge and dipped it in a pile of Diamond Dust. I love the snowy look it added to the box!!!! I used the new blue pleated trim w/ lace that will be available on the 1st of January at MB's Treasurista. I also used some trim from my stash for the closure. For the top i used a large gardenia from iamroses and various other iamroses flowers. I accented the flowers with winter buttons, clear wheat leaves and clear large acrylic flowers which are available at the MBT Shop! i also added some feet by painting wood balls with pale blue acrylic paint and hot gluing them to the bottom. I hope you like this project as much as i do, it will be placed on my mantle for all of winter...hehe Here are some more pics:
