I made it from WHAT?!?!?!

I made it from what . . .  I know, I was shocked too . . .  

I love my Layered Garden Beauties, and they make any project stand out.  The options available in the shop are enormous and you can get just about anything you want if you just take the time to peruse the site and look at what is available.  Me, I am a pink girl, so the choice for me is super easy.  However, today, I mixed and matched my pinks and greens.  And you will be surprised what my box is made out of.  Read on, and then let me know what you think by leaving me a comment. Your comments help me continue to improve my work. 
I am a self-proclaimed flower child; I love flowers and using them on my projects. That is one of the reasons I love being part of the Pinque Peacock Design Team. They have some of the best homemade flowers, like the Small Layered Garden Beauties I used on this great box today.

This fun box I got from a friend. As I brace myself for a collective ewwwwww… the box is an ElephantPoo Box. It had elephant poo paper in it at one time. I didn’t care about the paper, I just loved the box. Yes, I said Elephant Poo Paper.  I'm just glad I am not the one who has to go scoop the poo or make the paper. 
I also love it when I can use multiple resources to complete a project. Not only did I use multiple of the Small Layered Garden Beauties on my box, I also used both my Cricut machine and my NEW Cameo machine to cut the designs.  
The label I used came from the Lacy Label, while the fancy leaves I got from the Silhouette Studio files. I know the box is simple, but that is what I am simple. I love how the box turned out, and I plan to use it as a functional box to hold some of my embellishments on my craft desk. 
What do you think? Isn’t this just the cutest box? Thanks for stopping by my blog.
