I have seen a few of the new Spellbinders create-a-flower dies around in Blogland and although I'm not one for big flowers on cards, I do like the look of them for altered projects and home decor. I noticed that the sunflower die made a very similar shape to a large Woodware daisy punch that I have and so, it was time to experiment! I raided my punch box for all the daisy dies I have (4 different sizes in total) and punched out a load of layers in different shades of yellow. I inked the edges with Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain DI and pinched the petals to give them a bit more dimension...
...And there we have it, a pretty unique gift box ready to be filled with goodies! Not sure yet what I'm going to fill it with, but I'm sure most people would say that chocolate wouldn't go far wrong?! Hope you like my sunny creation and that you take inspiration to convert even the most unlikely of objects! Only problem now is that I am saving every container that comes into the house! Have a great Wednesday and don't forget about Eileen's fabulous challenge this week at Passion for Promarkers - scroll down a post to see my contribution and hop over to the PfP blog to see some more wonderful inspiration made by my amazing teamies!
Thanks for taking the time to come and see me today, take care and see you soon!
