Trinket Box

Hi Crafters,

Today I haven't got a card for you but I do have a wooden trinket box that I have decorated.

Firstly, I painted the box with gold acrylic paint and while this was drying I started to die cut the filigree parts from black card. I used various Creative Expressions dies for the lid and a Marianne Designs die for around the base. Then I used gold gilding wax on the black die cuts to tie in with the gold box and highlight the embossed details. After sticking these in place I added the braiding using hot glue and began the process of decorating the lid with lots of flowers, beads, pearl strings and leaves from my stash.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
613 Avenue Create - #224 ATG/Create or Decorate a Container
Not Just Cards - #70 ATG

I hope you liked my little box, see you tomorrow for more fun projects.
