Herbarium hanging frame

Good afternoon everyone
I hope you are enjoying your day.
My post today is a DT project for 
'Craft Consortium'
using the GORGEOUS
Hackney&Co


For this project I used the MDF box frame from
Daisy's Jewels and Crafts...
I assembled, covered the base and the frame with one of the beautiful papers, sanded slightly in areas just to give it the distressed look.
For the panels I added some of the reverse of the paper I used for the frame, sanded in areas and also added distress inks to age it.
I tore the herb toppers from the paper pad, inked the edges to distress further then added them to the panels...
I used faux gems to makes it look they are pinned.
I added some hooks to the bottom of the frame and a wall mount bar on the back....useful for hanging your herbarium tools on maybe!
I added some black cord with some of the gorgeous Craft Consortium metal embellishments that a part of the 'Herbarium Collection'.

I used Ranger Oxide Sprays - 'Forest Moss' and 
'Brushed Corduroy' to colour the interior of the box as well as to distress the paper on the panels.


I hope you like my project and if you haven't seen
