Magnolia altered 6 pack

Hello friends I wanted to update my blog and share with you this little 6 pack I altered for the July Maggie swap on the CMB. I just started with a regular cardboard beer 6 pack and then began to add the papers and embellies. This is a great little cheap storage solution for your paint cans, glues etc!

                                                        What I started with

I used the Princess pea Tilda on this side colored her with my copics markers and sat her in an ornate gold window die cut with leaves wrapped around it.. The gold flower on top is one I handmade awhile ago and thought it fit perfectly on this handle. I also used a brass TH sentiment on the handle with a little rhinestone crown charm. I cut the border with one of my MS border punches and added some iamroses flowers and some other flatter ones which I layered.

On this I used the Edwin stamp on his charger ( not sure if that is the correct name for it) He of course is doing what any great knight might do to rescue his princess on the other side. I did pretty much the same thing as on the front but added the lock and key to the handle and a different handmade flower on it also. I also cut the Italian doily to give a little more layered look behind Sir Edwin.

This is the end pocket with tag. I  scored the pocket so it could be shipped flat in a bubble wrap envie.

My partner, Barb said she really loved it so I am happy she is now able to store her things here.
