Wishing Well

The challenge this week at Make it Crafty is to create Anything But A Card. I put together the Wishing Well kit available from Make it Crafty and decorated it with butterflies and dragonflies. Drop in a coin and make a wish!

The instructions are written very well and it wasn't that hard to put together. I forgot to count the number of pieces but they're all labeled clearly. The hardest part was figuring out how to decorate it. I finally decided to use some new earth tone decorative papers and sanded the edges for a worn look.

The inside of the well is lined with blue paper and the bucket as has paper to make it look full of water. The best part, turning the handle will actually lift the bucket up and down too!

Did you know? The Mississippi River is the largest river system in North America. Along with its major tributary, the Missouri River, the river drains all or parts of 31 U.S. states stretching from the Rocky Mountains in the west to the Appalachian Mountains in the east to the Canada–US border on the north, including most of the Great Plains, and is the fourth longest river in the world and the tenth most powerful river in the world.
