Another Rustic Box and a Giveaway!


I had such fun making a box using a new fence board that I aged with apple cider vinegar and steel wool, that I decided to try another one using a label from The Graphics Fairy.  To see the directions for aging a board, click HERE.







 I tried to darken the label a bit, so I soaked it in coffee.  It came out a little bit darker...









I then Mod Podged it on the board. 






 
I think it turned out pretty neat.




 Here it is with four pint size canning jars set inside.  They hold the flowers perfectly!





So on to the Giveaway!  I will be giving this box (just the box, not the flowers or canning jars--too hard to mail!)  to one lucky winner.  I will be picking the winner on Friday, July 22, 2011 at 5pm Mountain Time.
