Altered Box

I was lucky to spend last weekend at a Craft Retreat organised by Janet and Michelle, two very talented ladies.
We learnt  lots, were well fed , met old and new friends and had a great time.
This is my version of the box which we all spent our time making during our stay.

We also made the contents.
Buttons made with clay, shrink and friendly plastic.
 Flowers using various materials, even the Needle case.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look.
