Just Magnolia Monthly Challenge-altered box

Just Magnolia have now introduced a new monthly challenge.This month it's to alter a container.I've had this cardboard tissue box container for ages waiting to be altered and the gorgeous DT projects inspired me to finally get it done.
The box has been covered with K & Co's beautiful Wild Saffron papers.....on 3 sides I've then decoupaged on flowers and leaves from the offcuts.
The sweet Springtime Tilda and bird have been watercoloured,cut out and stuck onto a distressed Nestie label....then some more WS flowers have been added....the paper lace is Lakeland.
I'm certainly going to do some more of this type of altering...xmas presents come to mind!!!
Have now got to get a load of ironing done,before we're off for a Carvery dinner to celebrate Father's Day.
