CWC and PCW Design Teams' Home Decor Blog Hop




Welcome to Paper Crafting World and Cooking With Cricut’s Home Décor Blog Hop!  Our Design Teams are so excited to bring you a two-day hop that focuses on projects for your home – that’s right no cards or scrapbook layouts in this hop!  You should have arrived here from visiting Jaime at Scrap Queen.  If you’ve joined us in mid-Hop and would like to check out all the other fantastic projects head on over to Cooking with Cricut to start at the beginning.

For you viewing pleasure, I am sharing an altered box that I created for this month's swap on my blog. We are to create flowers and alter a container for them to be housed in. It's based on the color palette of the month. This was a wonderful challenge for me. I combined a lot of different elements to create the box. I really hope my swap partner loves her box. I'll add pictures of the flowers that I have included in the box a little later this week.










Supplies
flower cute files by Jani Lewis
Recollections cardstock
red, yellow, and blue Stickles
UTEE
crackle paint
homemade stickpins
blue metallic paint
paper mache box
decorative trim from a RAK

We hope you’ll link up your Home Décor project for a chance at winning one of our giveaways.  One winner will be chosen by random draw and three others will be selected by the Design Teams.  Head on over to Cooking With Cricut for the guidelines and to link up. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Head on over and check out what Linsey at Outside the Lines has cooked up! Remember, I love you and there ain't nothing you can do about it.
