Everyday Enchantment Recipe Box

I have something a little different to share with you today.  I don't know if you as a crafter do this, but whenever I find a great deal on something that can be altered, I stock up on them.  Up until last year, I had a dresser FULL of alterable things.  I've gotten rid of lots of them but as I clean up and pack I keep finding more.  I've decided that as I find them, I will create something with them.  My motivation is two-fold - I have a couple craft fairs coming up before Mother's Day so I need items to sell:), and trying to use up some of what I have so that I don't have to move it!

So a couple weeks ago, I was going through yet another box from our storage room and came across 4 little recipe/photo boxes that I had picked up for next to nothing at a local craft store.  The colour of two of them matched the Everyday Enchantment dsp (free during Sale-A-Bration) perfectly!  So I took a break and made it pretty.  It was fun to create something a little different than a card or scrapbook page. 
I LOVE this paper and am so sad that after tomorrow, it will no longer be available.  I think this paper pack is my absolute favourite one that SU has EVER come out with.  The colour combinations and patterns are stunning!  Anyway back to the box...  The front of the box was decorated with 3 Boho Blossoms punch flowers with a rhinestone in the centre.
For the top of the box, I used a different patterned paper from the same pack, added a soft suede label cut from the labels framelits die and then embossed using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  The flower was cut from the Blossom Party die - I love how the flowers layer perfectly.  The brad in the centre is from the Everyday Enchantement brad & ribbon pack (free during SAB).

These didn't take me long to make at all and I felt so good when I could put them away for my craft sale.  If you'd like to see some of the other creations I've done here are the details for the upcoming craft sales:
