There are two other blogs which also have a flower related theme this month; Craft All Day, where I buy an awful lot of my supplies, including the 'box' that is the main focus of this piece; and also Vintage Stamping Challenges, which I like to enter when I can as I am still new to stamping and like to push myself a little.
First of all I painted it white and then when dry I stamped with grass and flower stamps, adding in a few little creatures too - a cute hedgehog, snail and blackbird ooh and a bench!
By then I had realised that it would be a great size to store my seeds in, so I stamped 3 x labels, for Herbs, Flowers and Veggies and a central label too.
The challenges I'm entering this into are:
