Altered Balsa Wood Desk Tidy

   When I went to the NEC with my friend Val she bought a set of three Balsa wood nesting carry cases and gave me the smallest one...... she challenged me to have it decorated for the next time she saw me.......... well I have completed the challenge and I'm not seeing her until the 29th April so I have more than met it! eh?

I wish I had taken a photo before I painted it when it was just a balsa base but here it is with just the More Amour designer paper and some of the lush two tone ribbon all from the Spring catalogue

A little side view

some added trim and flower and of course some pearls

a closer look at the flowers

I added pocket inserts 
here it is with some of my tools of the trade

I enjoyed doing this little project it made a change from cards

Until next time ........... have a super Sunday!
