Don't fence me in......

I love using paper pieced patterns to create something different and useful, and today my project is both cute and brings a breath of spring to my home.
I designed my own picket fence box for my cutting machine and used to it create this cute planter box.
I then used Treasure Box Designs "Mothers Day Card" kit and embellished my planter box. I added ,flowers, leaves, vines and the cute bear peeking out of the grass.
The vine is actually a ribbon from the kit, but it reminded me of a vine, so I added the leaves and flowers to make it climb up the side of the box.
I will finish adding more vines and flowers to all three sides to finish it off.
Add more or less embellishments to your liking, add a small plant and you have the cutest spring home accent.
Check out all of the cute paper piecing kits at Treasure Box Designs. Right now they are 40% off. Thanks for stopping by. See you again soon!
