Mardi Gras Shoe Box Float 2018

I recently entered a contest sponsored by the office building I work in.  Those of us who chose to participate were asked to use a decorate a shoe box to look like a Mardi Gras Float.
I am pretty sure they do it every year but I just never really paid much attention.  
This year I decided to give it a go.  I found out/realized about it on a Friday afternoon and was told it would have to be submitted by the following Monday.  Yeah....that's a problem.  I tend to go overboard on many of my projects.
Anyway....I was determined to make an amazing float and have it in on time.  
I spent most of Friday evening trying to figure out what I wanted to make.  I went through my entire craft room and both craft closets trying to get inspiration.
Then I remembered I just made some items for a Mardi Gras Ball with a Wizard of Oz theme.
So I decided to make a Wizard of Oz Float.
It was pretty much all hand made stuff using what I had at home.  I had a few other ideas I wanted to put on the float but I just didn't have the time.  I worked straight through the weekend until around 1:30 a.m. Monday morning.  I didn't even have time to clean up some of the minor issues I had but it was done and that was that.

Here is my final Mardi Gras Shoe Box Float
