Petaloo and Quick Quotes Blog Hop!

Greetings and wishing a happy Monday to you!
Exciting news and week over at the Quick Quotes blog...

We are so thrilled to be partnering all this week with our friends at Petaloo

Welcome to the Quick Quotes and Petaloo Blog Hop! 
I am super thrilled to kick off our fabulous week of fun with Petaloo. Our theme for the week is Mother's Day and for my project I've chosen our Gypsy Road papers. My project started out looking like this:

It's a leftover box from a gift we received during the holidays last year.  I inked all of the corners edges of the box using Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalk Ink to prepare the surface for the transformation.
Up-Cycled Gift Box

To begin, I trimmed my pieces to fit for covering all of the sides, then inked the papers with Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalk Ink. I'm a big fan of inking my paper edges to give them dimension.

The scalloped border you see is a die cut piece from a previous Club Q Kit. It fit perfectly, so I inked the edges with Antique Linen PowderPuff Chalk Ink, then attached. The bottom edges are folded over so I can still lift the cover off of the box.

Next, I added the Petaloo Burlap Trim in Cream next to the strip as a nice transition. I stapled the trim on the bottom edges of the box. The next piece that I added was a small white doily that I altered using the Antique Linen PowderPuff Chalk Ink. It slipped right under my trim and created the perfect embellishment block.

The little pearls were woven in and out of the trim and tacked down under the trim with glue. Now I added the Petaloo Darjeeling Mini Mix x8 flowers in Cream, the Darjeeling Petites x24 in Cream which are all accented by the Darjeeling Foliage Assortment x 15 to accent the blooms.

I completed the design by adding a sweet flourish that I tucked under the doily and a few little tags that I stamped the "So Loved" sentiment on using Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalk Ink.

Love what you did here. Beautiful project, and, as always, love a good repurposed item. (If saving random boxes is wrong, then I don't want to be right!)
