Apr. IAR Challenge

Here's another gift box I've whipped up full of Easter goodies, (and a few naughty bits as well) which I'm entering in the monthly challenge at I am Roses.  Surprise, surprise this month their theme is 'Easter', so we have to include eggs as well as their luscious flowers.

This paper mache box was first painted on the insides & edges, then covered with a DSD 'Truck in the Attic' paper.  Lace, doily, pearls and lots of gorgeous flowers decorate the exterior.  I am Roses flowers used include, Daisy's (in 3 different colours) little S-10 flowers and white buds.  I love these little S-10 flowers, they are so versatile.  The inside is packed with Easter eggs, grapes & a wee tipple, all under the care of this cute little bird.
Enjoy these extra photos from different angles and some close ups.

Do I need to tell you again how much I love making and gifting these little goodie boxes?  Such an easy way to give a gorgeous little gift without very much effort.  The recipient of this one is actually my postie, she is always sad when delivering me yet another parcel, so I'll surprise her with a small parcel of her own.  I'm sure she'll love it.
Thanks for visiting, wish me luck with this challenge.  Until next time have a happy, scrappy day.
