Shabby Tea Box

 So when is a tea box not a tea box? When it's been recycled and given a new shabby chic image!!
 My box started life as one of a set, so more to follow when I've decorated them. I've been using up scraps of the gorgeous Rustic Harmony papers that I had left over, that weren't big enough to make cards with, but were too gorgeous to throw away! I stamped out some of the sentiments and inked them up with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, and used the left over flowers and leaves from my mirror project.
I'm going to enter this in to the Craft Place Challenge which is Shabby Chic.

Lovely. You frugal crafter you! Those papers are far too good to waste though. Great job.
