Make My Monday - Dragonflies


My entry this week for Make my Monday is made from an empty Chambord liquor box, one that displays tiny bottles, that I picked up at a local store here. It has a top flap that folds up to keep the embellishments always visible. The dividers inside make it an ideal box for make-up brushes, q-tips, nail files, nail varnish etc. I covered the whole thing with co-ordinating papers, this took quite a bit of time to do. Embellished it with two button dragonflies, pearls, handmade flowers from coffee filters and co-ordinating papers, crystals, leaves made from hot glue and tissue paper, some heat embossed edges where the lid rubs when closing. Make My Monday can be found over at http://mimchallegeblog.blogspot.com/ or using the link in the side bar of my blog.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
