Wooden Celebration Tote

Good Monday Morning! 
Back again, on the Dies R Us Blog!  This time I would like to share a little project with you.
I found this sweet little wooden tote at my local craft store for $1.  I knew with a little Designer Paper and some wonderful dies from the Dies R Us Store I could transform it into something fabulous.  I think I was right!
First I painted it all white and covered it in pretty pink and white Designer Paper, wrapped a pink pleated ribbon around the top and added white sparkling glitter to the handle......and then the FUN began.  I sorted out a bunch of dies I wanted to use and started cutting.  

I started with this sweet little Picket Fence by Amy Design and moved right on to the Curly Words Celebrate by Die-Versions.  Let me just tell you how impressed I am with this wordy die.  It's fancy and delicate and perfect for....well for ANY celebration!  Here I layered a pink and white cut together so it would POP and add a bit of dimension. 

Next came some beautiful I know what you're thinking....aren't those Poinsettias???  Well yes, yes they are....BUT aren't they gorgeous???  This is the Small Poinsettia Set die from Impression Obsession.  I ADORE it and think it looks just lovely as 'an everyday flower'.  Plus this is for my 86 year old Mother......she'll love it.....wink, wink!  I die cut several out of a deep pink and light pink card stock and some beautiful Vellum.  Layered them together by size, not alternating from large to smallest.  Then I added some pearls for their centers. 

Next up came some of my beautiful foliage.  In the 1st photo you will see the fantastic Ivy Corner Flourish by Cheery Lynn.  I also used the Foliage 1 die from Paper Smooches. 

And for my final selection, I created a beautiful butterfly.  Butterfly #2 Set from our very own line Dies R Us Dies.  This set is awesome as it has five....that's FIVE different butterflies included.  I layered 3 different ones together in the deep pink and light pink card stock and topped with a Vellum one.  WOW!
A perfect little garden tote.  I'm not sure what I will put in it as yet, probably something chocolatey.

I will be entering this into the Challenge at Simon Says Wednesday, Flowers.
Here's what I used:
