Just a pretty little box

"Keep love in your heart. 
A life without it is like 
a sunless garden when the flowers are dead."
Oscar Wilde

I enjoy making boxes and  putting  little  RAK  items in them and  sending them off fro Happy  Mail and this is a great way to  use up  the  stash which makes me  happy too :) 

Most the products used are  from my stash,  but the  flowers are  new and available on our etsy store.  and the Flying Unicorn Adornments.

Adding Cheesecloth softens everything up and little trinkets between the  flower clusters adds dimension and  interest. 

Off to make a matching tag or card !
