This is also a first for me and i've had this box sitting in my craft room for well over a year. i liked the idea of decorating it but was never altogether sure what with. Well needless to say i found something. Again it is from a scraps of darkness kit.
It is meant to be a memory box so the top is filled with little trinkets from possible gatherings and outings, a playing card, a penny, a tiny pot of gold chips, flowers film reel, and loads more.
I wanted some little hearts to go into the tiny jar but couldn't find any that would fit. but i do have three more jars so maybe i'll come across some for the next project.
I made it look like there was a lock on the side and there is a small key on top that should look like it will fit the lock, I've tried to make it look like it old and has maybe been recovered or restored many times. there is three layers of paper that has been distressed a lot!!!
The papers and some of the embellishments used are from bo bunny the weekend market range the are brill for this ooldie worldie kind of look and distress really well.
I didn't do alot with the inside, i put some stenciling on the base, and then put this distressed piece on the inside of the lid.
