It´s all About Valentines Day!
By Ulrika Blomfelt

Time flies,  this is my third reveal here at Green Tara! It´s pure joy to create with all
 these amazing products! So far I have created six layouts but today I will show you
 something else I really love to create. Altered projects! I have three different altered
 projects all with Valentine in mind. Valentine is not only about red and giving things
 to those you have romantic feelings for. I hope my three things can give
 you some inspiration!

This box will be filled with something nice for someone I love.
Maybe for my mother or my sister?

I did many layers with paper, ribbon and flowers. On top of my flower cluster
 I tied a bow with this cool Green Tara Raffia ribbon.

The ribbons go all the way around the box but I only put flowers on the front.

My next gift is for a girl. Who wouldn´t feel like a princess with this cute headband in their hair?
 I for sure would wear it to a party or a scrapbook crop.

I bought a cheap plastic diadem (headband) and decorated it..

On top of the flowers the amazingly cute Butterfly spread it´s wings.

I wrapped the plastic headband  with Washi tape. Done in two seconds! So easy!

My next project is a little bit more traditional in it´s colors.
 I chose a dark burgundy red color scheme.

It´s so easy to change a boring box with patterned paper and pretty flowers. 
I used the same ribbon around the lid as on my bow.

I just wish I was small enough so  that I could  take a walk in this forest of flowers!

I also used some pink flowers to create some contrast.
