INAS Challenge #133 Theme: 3 of Something

 Good Morning Friends,

Our challenge #133 at International Art & Soul's theme is "3 of Something" I decided to make a Mother's day box. This is going to be a photo heavy blog so get some tea or coffee and join me.  I have missed all of you so much!  What have you been up to?

This is a large Mother's Day box from Dreaming Tree SVG it was quite time consuming but I think it was worth it.  So my 3 of something are flowers.  Note the 3 handmade blue flowers on the heart, they are all the same. I also put three handmade flowers on the bottom.

3 of a kind, Blue handmade flowers.

Some more flower that I made that could be considered 3 of something.

3 cupcakes in the box, as you can see, it could fit 4 or 6 depending on the size of the cupcakes.  You could put mom's favorite candies or cookies, or just use it as a box to hold a gift.

Oh this is my latest thing, I have been putting my small paper scraps through a shredder and then using them like this.

I am entering this box into the following challenges:
