Jewelry box for Christmas





I saw these small wooden jewelry boxes in the unfinished wood section at Hobby Lobby and decided to try to alter it for a Christmas gift. I have a certain someone in mind for it but not sure she will like it (but sure am hoping she will)! lol I first stained it and then started covering parts. I then spent several hours looking for a sketch to make an easel card for the top. I added a magnet to keep it shut when lying flat so won't just flop around when they open the lid. She loves flowers and bling so added plenty! I also inked all the edges for a more antique look. I added a little heart charm to finish it off. I did have fun working on this and hope to make a few more if this one goes over well. I am entering in the following challenges:

Creatalicious- sketch

Delightful challenges-flower power

Creative Cowgirls- anything goes

One Stitch at a Time- bling it up

Creative Inspirations- Christmas gift

Just Us Girls- 3-D

A Crafty Little Place- anything goes

Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club- use a die cut...I used my oval nesties

Paper Cutz- anything goes

Moving Along With the Times-more than one fold

Thank you so much for stopping by. God bless you all!
