Patterned paper

Just a quick post from me today as we're starting a new challenge over at the Alphabet challenge blog. We'd like to see "Patterned papers" this fortnight, meaning you can enter any kind of creations again, on the condition that they include some paper fun. 
I went very easy on that one by simply covering an old box of cereal toppings with a lovely rose-patterned paper. I wnated to use this one for quite some time, but I didnt want to use it on a card because I usually tend to cover up the majority of papers I use in card projects. And since I created quite a few cards lately, it had to wait in my paper stash for a non-card project. 
The process of crafting was rather simple: I cut the paper to size and made sure I placed it around the paper box without any major tears and wrinkles. To make sure there's a nice transition where the paper ends meet, I placed a red ribbon over the paper edge. 
For a bit of bling, I used gemstones in different shades of pink. I think they give a bit of bling to the project, and they're also great when it comes to filling the space between the rose buds. 
The box itself is on my kitchen shelf for the moment, filled with leftover cereals. I think I'll eventually use it for cookies, and as such, it might as well become a gift box filled with yummi treats. 

as you like it: favourite circle embellishment (It's definitely gemstones and/or pearls for me, as I can't seem to finish a crafting project without them. I like to add a bit of bling to my creations, and I think those little embellishments are a perfect way to enhance the main motif without taking the attention away from it.)
