Once Upon A Springtime~Altered Recipe Box

This is a $5.00 & under gift I made sometime in April for the Shoebox Party my friend Michele hosted. I didn't get around to posting the pics until now. *SIGH* I guess it's never to late to share a project I created. LOL!! I used a recipe box I picked up at Michael's for .50 on clearance so I thought it would be fun to alter it. This is what I came up with. I used the Graphic45 Once Upon a Springtime collection and embellished it with lots of trim & distressed inks. I also painted the inside of the box a pink-peachy color. I really love the way it turned out. Michele ended up selecting my gift and absolutely LOVED it. I added a bunch of embellishments & trims inside. The flowers & stick pins are handmade by me.

The embellishments I enclosed.
