Basket and mini hat = Memory box - F

My oh my - yes another hat lol.  Actually I have used it in a totally different way than normal.  I used it as a lid to a basket I bought from a car boot sale.  The theme over at Eclectic Ellapu this time is Travel (Reis) and or Anything goes.  Once this challenge is finished we will be going monthly on the 1st of every month.  This coincides with Altered Eclectics - makes it easier for everyone.

I have put together a memory box for vacations to keep items such as tickets. corks from bottles anything you wish to keep as a memory really.....Here are the pieces I used - I will then list all products I used and then the pics of finished item.

Products used

pink chalk paint
postcard serviette - modpodged onto backet and lid
cream lace
cream satiny fabric for inside
4 crochet butterflies and flower made all by my self lol
tiny wooden letters painted in silver acrylic paint
ribon for lid hinge and tab to lift lid

Now for the pics

Hope you enjoyed your visit and please call again
