Friday Challenge 51 - Petaloo Blog Hop Day 5!

Happy Friday to you, it's sure been an exciting week for us here on the blog as we are blog hopping with... 

We are so excited to bring you inspiration with our friends at Petaloo this week! 

Hello there! Happy Friday! Crystal here for today on day 5 for the Petaloo Hop and I made a gorgeous box using Catalina Island 300 and of course assorted Petaloo beauties.

It's also time for our all new Friday Challenge for May!
The theme: Add a flower or butterfly to your project!

I started by covering my card board box with Catalina Island 300. This is a square box so I cut (4) 4inx2in for the sides, and (1) 4in. x 4in.  for the top.

Next, I wrapped the sides with Fancy Trims in Burlap and the top with Fancy Trim Burlap in Teal.  Once the trimmings were glued, I made a big bow with Fancy Trim Burlap in Natural.

I began by decorating the bow using Teal Spring Dahilias, and Spice Dahilias. The leaves are from Spring Darjeeling collection and the tiny little white flowers are Petites in cream. 
Next I decorated the sides with the Spring Darjeeling collection in teal.

To finish it off, I added some pearls and created a tag from the  Catalina Island Chipboard Die Cuts

My box turned out pretty cute and it was so simple to make!

Very pretty box. Love that paper and the gorgeous ribbons you used on it. When I saw that paper, I immediately thought of sand, ocean and all the other wonderful things related. Thanks for sharing with us.
