Inspired again by Just for Fun who have a 'Fabric and Fibre' challenge this week but I also thought about what I could make for the Try It on Tuesday Challenge which is 'alter a present', then there was the Come and Get it challenge to 'make your own flowers'. Thinking cap on and I came up with this box to send to a friend for her birthday--with something inside of course.
I have had a very old Indian silk scarf for about 30 years and worn it a lot but now it is has holes in parts so I thought I could use that for the fabric, The box was one that had a jar of Olay Night Cream in it so I was all set.
I photographed the scarf and made a backing paper with the design. This is what covered the box then I made some flowers from some of the scarf. Lots left to make more flowers or maybe something else. I am pleased that I was brave enough to cut into it--amazing what thinking about a challenge can make you do lol
