Guest Design Team Project for Dragons Lair Designs Challenge Blog

Here is my March Guest Designer project for Dragons Lair Designs Challenge Blog.  I will be officially on the rotation as of April but couldn't help but want to play as soon as I could.  This project is a little magnetic hanging mail box that I bought for a dollar at the Dollar those things!  I tore up two colors of burlap looking paper from Sarah's Collection from our store and glued them to cover the ugly yellow plastic. While dry, I tore up an old pattern into chunks and crumpled them up and glued down trying to keep the crumples in the pattern tissue paper.  When completely dry I ran a piece of faux leather across the bottom with a digital tape measure inked with distress inks and took a little fabric spool and wound some yarn in my colors around it and inked the edges again before gluing down.  I cut out a strange 5 petaled flower out of the pattern tissue paper and stacked, staggered, and crumpled with a brad in the middle to make my odd little flower.  The crowning piece was my image from Dragons Lair Designs Store "The Manquin".  I colored it with a green Chameleon pen and fussy cut and adhered to the front.  This will hold my scissors!! and other items that tend to wander off!  And here it is:
