Crow Box

Crow box sounds kind of silly but I didn't know what else to call this. I was hunting for some ideas on Pintrest when I saw a few projects similar to mine that placed a crow on a box. I immediately loved that idea and knew I had plenty of boxes on hand that would I could readily use.

I love vintage (Country Living has been my decorating bible since I was 16) and was inspired to make this a vintage themed project. I used some scrap pp to cover the bottom and just die cut a circle from black cardstock for the top. I decided the scallop beige edge was a nice tone already and to leave it as is.

Adding bits of items here and there I built up the top of the box with flowers, skulls and a spider then finished it with toile and a stamped sentiment.

There are two skulls on the box (which the lid does come off by the way) one in the front and the other towards the back. Personally I love that I was able to use them as is and they didn't require additional distressing.

 I created both paper flowers using two different tools. This one above I used a Fiskars punch and the one at the top of the page was created using the Spellbinders die. Love how the make completely different styles of flowers.
