Home Decor - Gift Box

For the home decor theme I decided to create a little gift or keepsake box.  I can't remember what the box was used for originally but it was one of those that you hang on to as it might come in handy - I painted it gold, then added crackle paint and a coat of white.  I layered up a mixture of prima flowers, hand made flowers and butterflies upon some burlap along with several embossed tando chipboard pieces.  I included some chipboard lace that I had left over from my Works of Parts kit, mini keys and a compass - all of which I embossed with silver powder and slotted them along with the piles of flowers and butterflies.  Apart from waiting for the paint to dry it was a fairly quick project to put together and will add something to any gift....or I could always pop a mini album in it!
