Repetitive? Handmade Flower..

Hello Krafters!

As I was looking through my photos of projects that I have shared on my blog, it dawned on me that it has been a LONG time since I made my own flowers! I guess I have been spoiled J I also realized that my projects were starting to look repetitive to me. So I pulled out my hoarded lace and got to work!

Today, I am sharing an altered box I made using my handmade flower…it reminds me of the Prima flowers! Anywho, I really like how it turned out! On the flower, I used a broach that I bought on clearance. I felt they would be great together! I layered the flower on pearl strings and a feather. I made a stick pin to finish off the flower.

Although I have shared several altered projects, I believe this one does not look repetitive! I think I achieved my goal of the day! J

I hope you enjoyed today’s project! I hope the person who received this likes it as much as I did! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~
