Very picture heavy post, sorry about that. I just really wanted to show this box off. I first painted this wood box antique white, then added a crackle medium, then burnt umber mixed with white to the top coat. I used some of my favorite Tim Holtz paper to the sides. I added some ribbon from my stash to the lid. I took some prima flower with music notes on them and dabbed tea bag distress ink and added blue brads. The butterflies and blue findings are from Jolee. I just got the Tim Holtz ideaology keys, keyholes and gears, on sale at Hobby Lobby. They inspired the whole box. The key says secret, figured it would be a great place to keep her secrets, this is a gift for my niece Sophie. Also those two bottles on the bottom are what my prima flowers came in and they fit perfectly in the box, so thinking about decorating them and adding them to the gift, havent decided that yet.
