I wanted to alter something to add to my spring decor for my home and I found a small picture frame that I had purchased from Michael's a while back from the dollar bin, I thought it would be perfect! I made the box out of foam board and used liquid adhesive to put it together and pins to make it more sturdy. Once the glue was dry I added paper from the pink paislee, london market collection with modge podge. I also used gesso and vintage white acrylic paint to distress the box.I love the way it turned out!

I added flowers from a spray that I had found at Hobby Lobby on the left corner and on the bottom right I added a gardenia from I AM ROSES with some little eggs and a porcelain rose. On of the flower I fussy cut a sentiment from the Follow Your Heart, My Mind's Eye paper collection.

I used E6000 and hot glue to adhere the frame, I used the hot glue so that  I can still work on it while the E6000 dries.Using my finguer I dabbed some gesso mixed with a baby blue acrylc pain. I dyed  seam binding using tatter angels spray and wrinkled it while using my heat gun to dry, made a double bow and used a piece of trim and bling from Suhafuha's Etsy Store (the link to her store will be provided for you below) Than all I did was to adhere the blue robbing to the top of the box and dab white gesso on him, and  glue the box to a glass candle holder with E6000 and there you have it!!

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial :)
