Decorated Trinket Box

Hi Crafters,
Hope you are all well. It's very misty and murky here today, hope it brightens up soon.
Between making cards I have been trying my hand at decorating a wooden trinket box. With a couple of craft fairs coming up soon I decided to create a variety of projects for my stall, some of which I will share with you in the future.

I got my hot glue gun out of hibernation and used my stash of lace, trims and flowers to create a pretty box for your bedroom dressing table.
Here's the inside...
After painting the bare wood I sprayed it with two shades of Perfect Pearls Pearlescent Shimmer, but unfortunately what looks like blotches on the inside in this picture is actually how the camera has picked up where the shimmer is :(  -even the white pearls have a creamy/peach tone here too :/ very frustrating, but in real life it is very pretty.
I lined the inside with matching paper to take away the plainness.
Hope you like my little box and I would like to enter it in to these challenges,

What a pretty little trinket box, Lorraine! I love altered art and this little box shows why - it's so rewarding to see the transformation from a plain item to something so individual and decorative. Hugs, Lisa x
