Altered picnic basket with Marion Smith Designs

Hello friends!

I'm in today to share a small altered project I created for Marion Smith Designs. Usually altered stuff are not my thing but MSD products are so suitable for them, I had a lot of fun making this picnic basket.

What better collection to use than the Mad Tea Party eh? I used the papers and metal embellishments from this line, together with some bits from the Garment District 6x6 paper pad. 

Some closeups: 

Handmade flowers with the Bloom Impressions Tool and an altered metal butterfly.

Floral sprays made from MSD flower stamens. Love that they come in teal!

And here's a video of how I put the whole project together. Sit back and enjoy, and remember to hop over to the MSD blog for a whole list of supplies used.



  1. Looks wonderful, and clever creating!

  2. It's so pretty! I can see why it makes altered projects so easy!!!


thank you for dropping a note, it means so much to me!
