Crowns, Toile, and Newsprint,...Oh my!!!

Shame On Me! Shame on me for not posting for 15 days,...especially when I promised my little blog that I would be more conscientious about posting often. OOPS!
Moving on, happens to be Frugal Friday over at the Shabby Nest and I thought I would share a little project. I decoupaged a container so that I could use it as Christmas gift wrap and it turned out so cute that I think I may just have to keep it.
(Along with many other things which I have no need of or use for, and have no idea where to put.:))
I started out with this left over canister from some Harry and Davids chocolates that I bought from Costco....
and ate all of (not by myself.)
Well,....sort of by myself.;)

I found this fabulous crown paper at the Graphics Fairy and printed some out. Don't you just love the Graphics Fairy!!??

I used some leftover Toile wrapping paper for the lid.

Decoupaged it all on to the container.

Used my new "Stampin Up- Big Shot" to cut out these flowers. I am a terrible person who would tear the pages out of an old yellowed vintage book to use in a project. But, my own defense the book is in very bad shape and I use it for many projects rather then destroying multiple books.:)
Crumpled the flowers really well, stacked them, and fastened them with a brad. Then glued the one big posy that they made to the top of the lid.

It will make such fabulous gift wrap, don't ya think?

Welcome Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving has made it's warm cider and cinnamon scented way into our home. I adore this cozy and nostalgic time of year.
