I have the opportunity to grow lavender in my cutting garden and I just harvested a ton! But you can purchase lavender at most farmer's markets or craft fairs. I could even mail you some! Just ask.
I wanted to make something so I could share my lavender with my friends so I adapted this box I saw on Stamp TV here: Seed Box . I thought the box was really cute and when I started to make it, of course, I started changing it up. I went all Frenchy! I used "A bit of Paris" paper line from Three bugs in a Rug, the Magenta Style line (from France) and even my lavender is French. If you would like my altered patterned just email me and I'll send it to you. :)
Those of you who know me, know I am a gadget girl and so I pulled out all my "gadgets" and went to town.
BTW....... I used my Helmar 450 glue for this entire project and it was awesome. I created the flower with 450 just by twisting and wrapping and gluing as I went and it stuck. I added a little tiny magnet and small piece of to hold the flap of the box down.
