Treasure Box

I finished off this box today among my other errands - groceries, lunch with DH :), and taking my old pooch to the vet (he has an earache)
This is an altered cigar box and it fits perfectly for this weks challenge over at the Outlines blog - the challenge this week is to do something square. Check out the challenge here -
I stamped this stamp from Outlines several times and embossed with gold and then colored them with copics.
Then I cut them apart and used them to decorate this box that I had covered with pretty pink papers.
I added some pearls from a viva decor pearl pen.
The spool was first colored with a gold mettalic pen (all the paper edges are lined with the gold mettalic pen too) and then I added some amtching paper to the middle.

The inside bottom and sides of the box are lined with pink felt and then I added a mirror to the lid.

I thought it made for a very girly treasure box :)

All for today - need to get ready for
work now - first of probably 3 in a row (I volunteered for wednesday night too if they need me and with one of our co-workers out with surgery it is almost assured that they will need me)
Take Care
