Bestie's Challenge - Anything Goes/Flowers

Today begins a new Challenge over on the Besties UK Challenge BLOG and the theme is Flowers/Anything Goes

I wanted to make something other than a card for this Challenge so I had a look around and found my daughter's scissor pot from her craft desk which is a Smash tin and though I would upcycle it for her 

Here are the papers and embellishments I chose to use along with the undecorated tin


I wanted to use plenty of flowers for the Challenge Theme and wanted the pot to look really pretty for my daughter's craft desk, she is 12 and really getting in to making cards and loves pretty things xx


The Image I chose to use is available at the Etsy Store HERE

I coloured her using Copic Markers

Hair: E37, E35, E31
Hat: Y26, Y23, Y21
Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000
Lips: E04
Eyes, Leaves: YG67, YG63, YG61
Berries & Roses: R37, R35
Pink Flowers & Dress: RV25, RV21, RV10
White Flowers: Y17, C3, C1
Ribbons & Trim: BG13, BG11, BG10



The papers and Die Cuts I chose are from 'Vintage Blooms' by Jennifer Ellory I received a pack as a free gift in 'Quick Cards Made Easy' magazine and they are so beautiful I just love the summery colours - I love the sentiment DieCut and its very true of my daughter Ashleigh who makes me smile every day as do her 2 brothers and younger sister  

All the paper flowers I have used are from 'Wild Orchid Crafts' who I order from regularly they have such a wide range of blooms at very good prices 

I measured and cut two pieces of floral paper to cover the tin and attached them using 'Collal' all purpose glue. I wrapped a piece of florist ribbon around the covered tin I attached this using a glue gun. I then Die Cut my coloured Image and a large circular Doily Die from 'Joycrafts' and attached this to the tin using a glue gun. I fixed the DieCuts tucked around the Doily. I attached all the flowers and stamens in random places surrounding the other elements. I finished the pot with a pompom trim.

Ashleigh is very pleased with her now very pretty scissor pot


I hope you like my project and that it inspires you to enter the challenge there are great prizes for the winner x x
