Believe -- featuring Fab Scraps :)

Hi everyone :)

I wanted to share an altered project I made :)

We had bought these 'yard' decorations for our holiday decor -- and while Brian was trying to put it in the ground outside -- the the stick that goes into the ground, broke -- but the 'decor' piece that was a part of it, was too pretty to get rid of -- so of course I had to make something with it *wink* :)
Here is the 'yard' piece that was left after it broke :)   (it's wood, in case you were wondering) :)

So I decided to make a decorative box with it -- so I grabbed a vintage wood cigar box that I had :)

I started by peeling off as much of the paper that I could from the box, then I painted it green -- then I decorated it with Christmas papers from Fab Scraps, that I got at my local scrapbook store :)

And here is what I made with it :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
