Comeback Series 2 - Recycled pen stand and gift tag!!

Hello people, 

I am back again with part 2 of the comeback series. This time I am presenting two upcycled projects. A pen stand out of the tea box and a gift tag I made from Dorothy Perkins dress tag..:D

Here goes the making of the pen stand. I made it basically for my sister's colleague who requested her to get it decorated by me and since she was leaving their office for good I thought it would make a nice farewell gift.-
It was a simple aluminium square tea box- the one that contains those fancy flavoured teas :P. I simply selected a bright colored patterned paper and cut it accurately as per the dimensions of the box. This is how it looked once fully covered-
Quite plain eh??? I felt the same and added a punched out border of another contrasting bright color on the edge. 
I have used Martha Stewart's all around the page punch for this border and it came out beautifully.
However, when it comes to decorating, everything is incomplete without quilling in my case...well not everything but yeah! most of the the things so I decorated it with some quilled motifs-
I have made a simple 6 petal flower for the front and small closed coil flowers on the adjacent sides. I loved the way it turned out, simple yet striking for its bright colors. It was loved by the owner and I was happy to have put my quilling to some 'real' good use..

Now over to the gift tag I made from a dress tag. The tag consisted of several layers and this was of course the one I couldn't throw as it was extremely sturdy and beautifully blingy..
As usual, I was too impatient to take pics from scratch and I was half done by the time I realised..:P  I simply stuck a piece of leftover scrap from this project in the middle and a flower motif (similar to the one I made for pen stand) on the side. 
The ribbon used with the tag is also recycled, its the ribbon that is stuck on the sides of the dresses (part of the same dress whose tag is used here). You can actually see 'Dorothy Perkins' written on the ribbon ..I didn't mind it as I thought this tag would make a perfect accompaniment with a gift for a girl (we all love dorothy perkins, don't we!! :P)
This is no photoshop effect, the tag is actually so blingy that when clicked in natural light and without flash, all its twinkiling gets captured..
I found it pretty and a truly 'recycled' project. Please do let me know your valuable comments/ feedback. They are too too important and of course appreciated.

Much love,
Just Love Crafts xx
