It's time for My Creative Time 3D Wednesday!

This week Emma has added a twist to 3D Wednesday. Not only are we doing a 3D project, but also we are  using something in our home that would typically be thrown away. Yes, we are RECYCLING! For my project, I decided to make something from this ribbon spool. Goodness I have tossed enough of these things in the trash, it's time I used one for good, right!? :) You'll never guess what I came up with! -- or maybe you will. ;)

Here is the beginning of the project....can you guess yet?
Ok enough guessing games. I made a sweet little keepsake box for grandgirl, Courtney, who turned 7 on the 7th. She LOVES fairies and sparkles and jewelry and all things girlie. I think I scored big with this little project! :)

Product List:
My Creative Time, Teeny Tag Greetings
My Creative Time, Stitched circle die {small flower}
Empty ribbon spool
Graphic45 Once Upon a Springtime paper collection
My handmade flowers
Memory Box leaf dies
Making Memories metal initial charm
Ribbon, stickles, pearl beads, string pearl beads, button, ink
