SOS13 - Weakest link - Flowers

Do you have the best intentions of not buying anything new but seem to always "fall" for a certain company release or item? Then we a perfect challenge for you. Today's Shopping Our Stash is called Weakest link and we want you to use the thing/s you can't live without ;)

My weakest point is flowers - Wild Orchid, Prima, any kind - I buy WAAAAYYY to many of them (especially when I see some on sale) and then of course have no time to use them all. Today I made 2 projects with them and didn't even make a dent in my flower stash ;)

Both boxes started as plain untreated wooden ones from dollar store - the first one was sprayed with several layers of Glimmer Mist, the pink one was painted with acrylic paint. I used hot glue to attach the flowers and leaves - the big white and gold flowers are Recollection (from Michaels), other flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Leaves are Recollection too.
On the side of the pink box I stenciled some flowers with Memento ink - first time I used stencil and it turned out quite ok ;)
