Candi Love with Craftwork Cards

What great Candi inspiration from Marie Chillmaid and the team at Craftwork Cards for Candi Love Week! You might have noticed some candi flowers on a couple of my cards this week and I have made a Tag and ATC Storage box from the inside of some mini rolls! The kids devoured them before I had got one so I figured I'd use the box.
I have covered it, inside and out, with papers from the Flying High Paper Pad. The edges are inked with Peacock Feathers distress ink.

I used a Spellbinders die to cut a panel for the front, embossed and added more Peacock Feathers to highlight the shape. I've added teal candi around the edge. The white candi was added, stamped using Craftwork Cards candi alphabet stamps and inked with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.
I added 4 small candi flowers to the corners. Along both sides, I have crushed teal with gold polka dots candi and used as a border - this also hides the paper join! There are some more crushed candi along the sides too.
Marie has featured my project on the Craftwork Cards Blog today along with another fabulous fan make. Why not pop over and leave some love there too!?

I am going to enter this in the following challenges -
Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes (Altered box)
Rhedd's Creative Spirit - April Challenge (Altered Art)
Tando Creative Challenge - Recycle (inner box from Cadbury Mini Rolls!)

Crafty Girls Challenges - Anything Goes
