Happy Birthday Margaret!!!!

Happy Birthday to a special little girlie, that is what my post is about today.  My daughter's has a birthday today and so we made her a cute little box to go along with the gift that we picked out for her. 

Materials needed:
Paper 2 sheets cut 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 and 8 x 8
hot glue or glue you prefer

Score paper at 1 inch the whole way around both sheets
Fold and cut in each side of corner and then taper to create box effect.
Glue and line inside and outside with paper
Cover with lace, I added mesh bling over the lace for added glimmer effect. 
Lined the top in a cross fashion with other lace to mimic the look of ribbon on the box
Covered in layers of acrylic flowers, pearl sprays, wheat sprays from
Added petaloo flowers from a spray
Added rosette center from Mbtreasurista and acrylic organza sequin flower center.
Created little tag with papers, distressing tool edges, and sharpie pen.
