Photo box decoration

As you are reading this I am on a beach somewhere basting in the warmth of the sun! But i am still showcasing projects for this month. Today I am on Timeless Twine and I made this crazy looking decoration. I had originally planned to make a kraft box to put it on and I think it would have made it stand out more but I just couldn't get it all done. I liked the aqua/black combo. I made a button flair that mimicked the graph design on the aqua paper underneath it. I decided to just make it for a decorated up photo box. I used a pretty pink posh photo strip die for the area below it and even though you can't tell it that is silver foil paper behind it. I also used the silver foil on one of the sqiggly arrows. The angle I took the picture does not show it off but the button catches so much glare I had to leave it like this. I could take 100 pictures and still not be happy with them and I can not afford the time right now so I took the ones I thought looked good and kept them.

I layered this with lots of texture. The kraft paper is a more textured kraft that I normally use and then I cut some leaf shaped burlap. That stuff frays like crazy. I popped some curls of Timeless Twine Natural twine behind it to add to the texture. I might end up cutting those tails down on the black flags but for now it is done!
