Stacked Book Boxes

I've seen a lot of 'Stacked Book' projects on youtube lately and was inspired to alter my own. I decided not to make my boxes from scratch as there were some 'book boxes' on sale at the local warehouse so I grabbed three of those to alter.

I used a combination of Prima's "Tea Tyme" and "Romantique" papers to cover the boxes, these are all gorgeous papers and so nice to work with.
Recently I purchased a bag of flowers from ebay and there were a huge variety in them which I used on this project, the soft colours went perfectly and the realism looked just right. On the top box I placed a doiley that I had made smaller and gathered up so that a bouquet of flowers could sit on top. I used a couple of my metal leaves and some seam binding to tie it all together. There's a splattering of pearls, a large crystal bead and a stick pin I put together. A charm also hangs down which has beads, pearls and a charm of a perfume bottle from 'DK Crafts'. Also on the top is a butterfly which I cut out of some Kaisercraft paper and stickled around the edge.
The next two boxes are lightly decorated with flowers and lace.
I really enjoyed putting this project together and the fact that it's useable storage space too!!! Always a bonus when space is limited :)
Thanks for taking a peek and I hope you like my book stack :)
