Wedding Card Box

I finally got it done!!!!!  I purchased the paper mache boxes from Jo-Anns, they came in a set of 5 I used the 3 middle boxes. Added 3 coats of off white acrylic paint. The roses on the layers were made using Tim Holtz's Tattered Floral dies from Sizzix. The leaf punch is from Martha Stewart and I embossed veins into the leaves. The brown leaves were also a Martha Stewart punch. 

The smaller flowers between the roses were made with a Martha Stewart punch also, the smallest flowers that are brown and green are a EK success punch and I added liquid pearls to the smaller flowers.


The roses on the very top were done using the McGill floral petals punch. The lace I found at a Flea market, was so thankful I had enough to go all around.  My husband said I needed something at the bottom to look like icing so we came up with this idea Using seam binding from Martha Stewart, I took double layer of score tape and put it all around, took a dowel for spacing and went around, so that the ribbon that is sticking out wouldn't stick to the scortape I took a paint brush with powder and put it on the scortape so the ribbon wouldn't stick to it.

Here is a close up of the flowers. My Daughters colors are green and brown for her wedding.  I showed it to her this weekend and she seemed to really like it. 

Thanks for Stopping by today, and I really appreciate the comments :)
