Whats in the box.

This is a new game, "Whats in the box", I love boxes, even as a kid I filled them with stuff and pretended they were for what ever was needed for my day dream of the day. Now this box is big bright and pink, it should contain fabulous shoes. Well, no, my daughter has the shoes and I have the box. Is there something wrong with that... :) So lets open the box......... TA DA! This where I keep my ribbon flowers, I love them they are so gorgeous, again my love of ribbon coming out. I made a tray to fit in the box so I could get more in and not crush the flowers.

Here I have mostly roses, but there is a big white silk pansy, silk really makes the softest and prettiest flowers, but it is a bit spendie.
Here we have the bottom section I made little areas to keep each type of flower separate, it makes them easier to find when I need them. I have pansies in one section, leaves in another, fuchsias , sweet peas, roses, and 2 kinds of fillers flowers.
Here is a close up of the top tray. You can see the little roses peeking thru, the hot pink rose is quite involved and takes almost 3 yards of ribbon, the same with the lighter pink one. The white and gold organdy roses on the left were made for a 10th anniversary cake for a dear friend, and I also used them on a wedding cake for another dear friend. Well that's what is in this box. There may be more to come. Do you have a box with fabulous lovelies in it? TTFN

LOVELY!!! I love silk flowers too, don't have many but am always on the lookout to buy some. I can't make them myself, duh! So sometimes go to a store where they sell flowers on stems, lol. I cut the stems off and hey presto, new flowers to craft with :)

How wonderful is that! I love the box and the ribbon flowers. What a nice re-use of something.

Lilla said...

I do like the ribbon flowers. Thanks for the peak into your box.
They are amazing.
I do not have any 'Photoshop' sort of thingys. Just what came on my PC, manage to fluff around by overlaying images and photos on each other and scanning them. Have something to blur edges and I just muddle along.

Hi Wanda, oh I love your box full of ribbon flowers. Just gorgeous!
So nice to meet you and thank you for stopping by and your sweet comment.
I enjoyed visiting your lovely blog. The ribbon flowers are wondeful to create with as well. I have a few, but would love to make a bunch for spring. A good front of the TV project. LOL.

Hope to see you again.
Have a great week.
hugs, Celestina Marie
