Hello Spring!

--Here for the PaperHaus Blog Hop? Click here--

It's all things Flower Box Collection at Doodlebug Designs this week!
For my project, I altered an inexpensive wooden frame that I found at Hobby Lobby.
 For the wooden frame, I used a brown chalk-style ink pad to distress the wood. 
 I found it best to use a sheet of vellum to create a template for the inset of the frame;
 trace onto desired patterned paper and cut out. 

 For added dimension and interest, I trimmed out the inner edge with a strip of patterned paper followed by a border of Bumblebee Doodle Twine (I use a Fine-Tip Glue Pen for this). I added a row of washi tape and strip of paper to the bottom to mimic a ground full of Spring flowers.

  For the focal point, I layered two different sizes of doily die-cuts and then embellished with
 several of the Doodle Pops and cardstock stickers from the Flower Box Collection
A ribbon hanger to the top and it's ready for hanging.
Can you tell that I'm just a little ready for Spring? :)
Many more Flower Box projects to check out at the Doodlebug Blog.
See you tomorrow!
