Storage Idea

I am so thrilled to be able to share my latest storage idea using Really Reasonable Ribbon products.
This is a very plain plastic type wood box I got from a friend that was tossing it out. Well you know I couldn't let that happen.
 The front view decorated-I still think I will spray paint the basket insert white.This trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon Noelle White Crochet Lace is one of my favorite and worked so well for my box.
Some of the embellishments I used on the ends.
 This is the top side-I used some of my favorite paper from LAST MONTHS PROJECT Lost & Found
Here is one side view
This is the other side view
So now my biggest decision is what I will put inside-I am thinking ribbon rolls!

I would like to enter in these challenges:
Crop Stop- Is It Blooming outside
Delightful Sketches-use pattern paper
PaperPlay Challenge- for a mother or woman
Case Study Challenge- Picture inspiration
