An altered sweetbox for Papirdesign and Sizzix UK

Hello all you scrappy friends!!

Today I have a decorated box to share. It's decorated with great products from Papirdesign.
 I plan to add a small gift to the inside and give it to a friend who has a birthday soon.
This was the box I made for my Sunday post on the Sizzix UK blog and so far here on my blog I only shared a small sneak.

After eating all the Turkish Delights in the box I did not feel like throwing it away so
I used paper from the Spring collection 'Forventning' to dress it up.

I cut out patterned papers a little haphazardly and glued them to the lid. 
Firstly one pattern to the top and then another pattern for the side. 
I added a strip of sequin ribbon to cover up where the papers meet.

I used some great dies by Sizzix to decorate the lid. (Links below) After cutting and glueing down a trellies pattern I added a couple of mini rosettes and then a large handmade flower on top. I used pop dots to add dimension.

A few more close ups:

I just think those larger peony buds from Papirdesign are sooo lovely!!

I hope you liked this.
 I'll leave you with some advise; ...
Eat lots of Turkish Delights (or other sweets) and you'll have your own box to alter :-) LOL!
Have a good day!
