Trying my hand at a box!

Hello, this project is made from an old cardboard box I had. It made for a cute altered project. It was easier than I thought to do. I shy away from hard projects but once you get started, it goes by fast, and the heartfelt papers make it so easy to make things cute.
look at those cute fairies!!
you can purchase them and the paper here :

Here is what I used to alter this little box...
Products used:
HCD1-7126 Wildwood Cottage Darlings Die
HCD1-7120 Wildwood Cottage Accent Die
HCPC-3769 Wildwood Florals Cling Stamp
HCD1-7125 Wildwood Florals Die
HCPC-3772 Wildwood Cottage Accents
“Wildwoods Cottage” Paper collection

Other products used: Stickles “star dust”, Memento “Tuxedo Black" to cottage accents, StampinUp! “Forest Foliage” for the foliage and “Chocolate Chip", pearl beads for flower centers, Valspar Satin paint in "Wash Green".

I used a little Card board box that measures 6x4, painted the box inside and out using Valspar Satin paint. Let it dry and then cover the inside and out of the box with using a sheet from the paper collection.

Stamp, color and die cut the fence and fence gate using the Chocolate Chip ink pad. Cut enough to go around the outside of the box.

Stamp and die cut 2 of the fairies and adhere them to the front and top of the box
I used one of the pre-printed panels on the top of the box, I liked the cottage view.

Stamp, color and die cut flowers and foliage and add them to one corner on the top of the box. Add the beads to the flowers and add a sentiment. Mine is straight from the paper collection.
Add stickles and you’re done!

Thanks so much for stopping by...
