Christmas Trinket Box

Hi Crafters,
Are you all ready for the big Day?
I'm almost there, just a little bit of food shopping to do tomorrow and that's it, phew!
There's such a lot of work to do to prepare for a couple of days isn't there?
We will get to see family and friends that live away and it's a great time for catching up though.
Now for today's post I would like to share a little Christmas Trinket Box I made recently.

It started life as an ordinary brown cardboard box and I painted it cream and then added a strip of embossed speciality paper around the circumference of the base. Then added this gorgeous tassel trim at the bottom and around the lip on the lid. I used a small doily inked with Antique Linen distress ink and embossed the edges with gold embossing powder to cover the top of the lid. In the centre of this is another circle of the embossed paper also edged with gold EP. The fun part was adding the flowers, glass beads and ribbon to decorate the top. I had this on my stall on Friday and it sold within the first five minutes, I was so pleased.
