Recycled gift box

I discovered an old watch box and thought it would be a good idea to recycle it and turn it into a gift in itself.  I used one of the hearts from the cogs set to decorate the lid of the box, Using two coats of acrylic paint and sanding back the top layer with an emery board to reveal the one underneath.

The box was covered and lined with vintage effect text paper and I used adhesive ribbon around the edge.

The little gifts inside include a handmade booklet with tear of pages....

and four matching corner bookmarks.

Thanks for looking
Chris xx
