Christmas Wishes.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am in work soon but i will take my laddo across the road to school first.:D
So on to my creation for today and this has been made especially for work.
We put out a tip box just around Christmas time and our old one was a choccy tub covered in wrapping paper.I was asked to make a nice new one and here it is.
I am not sure how long it will last but it will look pretty for the few weeks we need it for,  i`m sure.
I am also entering this into the following challenges:
1.Crafting Cafe Challenge - November Challenge - Not a card
2.Get Creative Challenge - Challenge 1 - Anything goes
3.Dream Valley Challenge - Challenge 94 - Getting ready for Christmas
4.Creative Card Crew Challenge - Challenge 74 - Christmas joy
6.Creative Moments Challenge - Challenge 55 - Anything goes/celebration
7.Crafty Catz Challenge - Challenge 254 - Ribbon/and or lace
8.Pile It On Challenge - Challenge 45 - Special occasion

Apologies for the little bits of blue showing under the top lip, my lamp is showing it through.
Products used are:
Washing capsules box
Gold and white acrylic paints
First edition papers
Distress tool
Gold ribbon - wrapped all the way around
Pearls and pearl swirls
Poinsettias
Gold berries
Woodware sentiment stamp.
Lots and lots of crafters companion sparkle spray, about 6 coats to hopefully protect it a little.

The main bit, its such a shame you can`t see how much everything is sparkling, everything has had about 6 coats of sparkle spray.

The flowers, you can see a little of the sparkle here.The acrylic paints were sponged onto the empty container.

And an overhead view.
As you can see there are still little bits of blue showing so i picked papers that have blue and green in them.I didn`t want to paint just in the lip where it opens as it will rub off.
Thanks so much for popping by, it means a lot ;D
Hugs
Nic
