Paris on my table!

Hello crafty friends..
Welcome to my page today.
Wee am here with my DT post for Rhedd’s Creative Spirit where every month its only Altered art or Mixed Media, NO CARDS! That’s always easy on my cos...I get the jitters if I have to make a card!
This time too I have recycled an empty paint box carton. I played around with its existing dimensions and made it look like a ladies bag!
I had a friend in mind when I did this. She has a new job and I dint want to just give a card that would probably be shelved and forgotten. I decided to give something that she would have on her desk and maybe it could even help her to be little more organized...what say???
I have used the Indian brand papericious”an evening in Paris” paper stack. Unusual of me with pinks here, but them it was going to a female friend you see!
The paper by itself was so pretty, I just added a little bit of lace and pearls to enhance the feminine look, lol! One little handmade rose with TH tattered florals die adorns the lid.
The handle is made with co coordinating glass beads and copper wire from my stash.
The die cut is from Sizzix and perfect for the occasion.
The box opens to reveal a stack of cards organizer! Yes, it’s a visiting/business card holder.
I thought my friend would find it handy and fancy on her table and easy to carry around too!
I hope you will drop by to see what team has in store for you and take the time to play along too.
