Through the " Window"

Hello Crafters,
What a satisfying day! Done with a mega project of altering a wooden crate which has been lying with me for ages, even before I started Crafting!
I guess it had to see THIS day...I have spent 2 creative days with this crate and love every corner of it! here are a few early stages of the makeover, sticking some corrugated cardboard here and there...

The PP and chicken mesh texture and random stamping. I have created a window for photographs which is open on one side, so it can be changed.
 It has a lot of special elements in it...basically a vintage style with bursts of citrus colors!
I think it has brought out the best in me...for it was quite challenging for me not to go overboard too!

I have used this lovely PP's from DCWV...Botanicals Stack and CC from DCWV...citrus cardstock.
The combination is Yummy and beautiful!!!
This is going to be a picture heavy post, so I am going to cut down on my  blah blah.
Enjoy the tour and waiting eagerly for your feedback on this. Am really excited and so happy I did justice to this vintage crate.
There are two sides to it and had a lovely time playing around with pattern papers and making lots of handmade blooms and other embellies too. Have a look....

How about putting a bottle of wine and gifting someone...perfect isn't it???
The next day when the wine is over,just put your favourite show plant into it! cool eh???
The lid opens at the top to slide anything inside!Lots of stampind and I have stamped the current year too, so that I get to know how long this will remain Vintage!

View of the empty crate. The lovely sheer curtain is made from the transparent wrap that accompanies  a flower bouquet!Do you see a tag hiding behind the curtain. The sheer curtain does not block the view, yet gives a delicate look to this side.
When the Led candle glows...romantic eh???
A closer look at the Botanical PP...lovely right....the bird has been highlighted with glossy accents.
The blooms are hand made, heat embossed and die cut sunflower, all together. Do you see the tag clipped in with a mini peg?
The side view of the carton...lots of texture and stamping and some coconut shell buttons.
The front of the tags...
The back with lovely sentiments from Stampendous.
Thank you for your patience...I would like to go on and on...hope I have not missed out on any details.Happy mothers day.

Until then,
Happy Crafting and Re cycling.
