Tea anyone?

This was originally a box of specialty teas that I had received as a gift.  I knew that I would use it for something one day, so I whitewashed it and set it aside.  When I saw these lovely "Little Girl" papers from Echo Park, I knew that they would be perfect to make a little shadowbox for my daughter.
First, I measured each opening and cut patterned paper to size, decoupaging it in place.  I also covered the lid with heart paper.  I added a second coat of decoupage medium and let it dry overnight. 
Once that was dry, I added the cloud, grass, punched flowers, sign and the bottom layer of my tree frame to the lid.  Another coat of decoupage medium and a bit more drying time.  Then it was time for the fun part:  Embellishing!
Some photos, ribbon, 3-d embellishments, and some pop-up adhesive under the photo on the lid, and it was complete!  So, don't forget to look at packaging in a crafty way...You never know what treasures you may find!
