LSG: Altered Flip Flop & Box

I created this altered flip flop and box for a fellow scrapper. Both containers are paper mache. Here is a before picture of the flip flop.
I coated both the inside and outside of the boxes with my Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Stains in Dark Chocolate Truffle and Hottie Patottie Pink. The strap was painted white and then I added a pearl metallic finish. Rhinestones of various sizes were placed on the strap of the flip flop. I put together some flowers, added some brown seam binding and also some leaves. The bottom of the box was trimmed with pink rhinestones.
For the lid of the box container, I created my own cherry blossom floral vine. The cherry blossom flowers and leaves were strategically placed, with stems attached. I then wrapped the whole piece with brown floral tape. To finish the lid, I added some rhinestone flourishes. The leaves were sprayed with Gator Gumbo Olive Starburst Spray. The cherry blossoms were sprayed with Desert Moon Cactus Gold Glitz Spritz.
