I Am Still Organizing! My Pink Storage

Hello...Hello...uh is there anyone still out there?

I am so sorry I have been so crazy busy that I haven't had time to make or share projects.
So a quick pop in and a new project- yippie!!!
So would you believe I did an altered organizational piece?
I had two of these in my stash and decided it would be a great piece to alter and store some of my Helmar liquid products.
Used a fabulous Americana acrylic paint as a base coat.
I had to use one of my favorite smaller glue bottles to hold the handle while I was painting and allowing to
Next I used the Decoupage medium as a great glitter adhesive.
Covered each side and used a mixed blend of several of my favorite Pinks of glitter.
 I left a good inch on the top of each side co I could add ribbon and embellishments.
450 Quick Dry  is the perfect adhesive for adding ribbon,because it doesn't bleed through and it hold forever...yea!
 The first picture shows the trim and the second  has the second ribbon and a wonderful bow and fabric flower,I love these Really Reasonable Ribbons.
 I even used the 450 Quick Dry to outline the top lip with vintage tape measure pieces...isn't that great?I have been saving this roll forever! Dropped a piece of styrofoam in the inside to cushion all the bottles.
Even got to use the GemStone Glue to add a pearlized gem to the center of my bow.
 I decided to add some fun Baker's Twine from RRR to cushion the wooden handle
I love all the supplies I was able to fit into this container-it now sits on my craft table for easy access to my favorites.
Each day I try to pop in to more and more blogs to visit...hope everyone is doing well. I sure do miss my daily posts and visits.
Hugs everyone
