Arty girlz Challenge #50 and Sarah Kay challenge purple/green

What a crafty day! I have done 3 challenges. This one combines 2 challenges. The Arty girlz theme is alter something. The Sarah Kay challenge is to use green and purple. I got my new Sarah Kay stamp today from Sassycrafts.
I chose this plastic washing tablet box ( you did say anything). I cut off the lid and covered it in paper i had glimmer misted. I then stamped some Sarah Kay images and coloured them in differently, using sakura stardust pens and a waterbrush. I stamped some flowers from Joanna Sheen and used these and the Sarah Kay images to cover any little blips. I then punched 12 holes using my crop-a-dile and after adding eyelets I thread the ribbon through.
I forgot to say I made a ribbon dispenser.
Whilst I was making this my 8 year old daughter suggested I could use it as a bag. Nice for a gift box, or general storage, as an easter basket, Pot pourri holder. There are lots of ways you can use the covered box.
