This next creation is by Nancy Wethington and we know you're going to love it! She's taken a simple wooden flower box and dressed it all up in Christmas Emporium and Christmas Past! This is a perfect example of how you can take something super simple and turn it into something gorgeous! Here is what Nancy had to say about this wonderful work of altered art!

"I found this portable wood flower box at a local craft store.  It was end of the season and really cheap so it just had to come home with me.   I was going to keep it until next summer until I started thinking about Christmas gifts.  I remembered this little flower box and decided to alter it for Santa's letters and/or Christmas cards.  Christmas Emporium and Christmas Past papers from Graphic 45 mix beautifully together.  Adding the Staples Door Plate made the front of this piece look like a mailbox." -Nancy Wethington

Here's what I started with.

Beautiful! Thanks for all the inspiration!

I just adore the new Tropical Travelogue collection. I envision so many projects with it.....altered canvas, mini albums, pic frames. We have a bay house and the collection just reminds me of the wonderful times we have there. Can hardly wait for the release.

This collection is awesome, I love the colours and themes and can't wairt o scrap my Bali tropical holiday using this exquisite range. G45 papers are my all time favourites!

Yuka and Nancy, your projects are woderful. I am in love with Travel Travelogue! Ideas are swirling in my head for projects with this amazing line!

Love the Tropical Paper, and Nancy's tool box is adorable. I want one for my Christmas Cards.

Love the inspiration and the tropical paper is giving me a heat wave a tropical heatwave lol!

When will the Tropical Travelgue collection be available for purchase? Can´t wait to see this paper in person!

The Travelogue papers are gorgeous and I can't wait to see them in person! Love the Christmas box too - great place to keep all the cards we get.

Love the letter holder! Great idea for repurposing old items inexpensively but beautifully. Too bad we can't do that to ourselves when our face and body needs a little "refreshing".

These papers are so delicious, i can't wait to get some! I also love Nancy's altered flower box, so clever and looks quite straighforward to do hmmmm! well done.

I love the Christmas projects!

I am really speechless over the beauty of the Tropical Travelogue collection! G45, you have really gone off the charts with this paper! I can already see so many wonderful project uses!

I'll find something to alter anyway I'm sure!! I'm inspired!!! Those island papers have me asking Santa for tickets to the Bahamas!!!

What rich looking paper. Especially love the "turtle/tortoise" looking paper and the elegant ladies.
The Christmas card and decorated box are fabulous! Would love to display those in my house! Well done ladies!!
