frame and box set

Here is a gift set i have made by altering a cheap frame from a pound shop and decorating a cardboard box  that have been hanging around my craft room for about a year !!!,they make wonderful gifts ,so i thought i would put a pic in of me and my daughter and gift it to myself  for mothers day,,lol
I used the stunning Rose garden papers from trimcraft first edition,The flowers are made using a daisy die from SU and sizzix.I used the anjas flourish and die set from marianne d,the ribbon is from meiflower crafts and the lace is from my stash.I covered the frame by tearing up the paper and layering it up with pva glue.
