My Creative Time April Release Blog Hop

Hi and welcome!! :)  Hope you are enjoying the hop so far!  If you arrived here from Shar's blog you are on the right track!

For my project today I decided to step out of my card making comfort zone and make an altered box!  I used one of the cardboard boxes I found at Michael's! :)



I used the AWESOME Rolled Flower Dies and the coordinating Floral Sentiments set. Making rolled flowers is my new favorite thing!! :) 
I covered the box in cute polka-dot paper by Jili Bee Designs. I inked around the edges of everything with TH distress ink.  I added some ribbon around the lid and some twine and a button.  The leaves were made with the Martha Stewart Rose Leaf punch (on sale now at Michael's for 40% off! yay!!).  I stamped the Hello sentiment onto the MCT Teeny Tag die from the Teeny Tag Greetings set!




***GIVEWAY ALERT***
For our Blog hop giveaway, each one of us will be giving away an Echo Park "DOTS & STRIPES" 6x6 pad! All you have to do is leave a comment here along w/the rest of the design team's blogs AND also leave a way for me to contact you! Each designer will be picking a winner! So remember you have "20" chances to win! The deadline is Sunday, April 22nd at midnight!

Tracy
