Altered Box


I recently found this round box tucked away out of sight and decided to alter it as part of Jan's birthday present, I covered it with paper and made the flowers to decorate it, added an image and some distress ink coloured lace then filled it with chocolates, there is lace around the lid that was originally green and I changed it to brown with a combination of coffe, walnut stain and distress ink,quite a strange cocktail but it worked!
I'm entering this into ToptipTuesday challenge - Shabby Chic and TryitonTuesday - Alter anything
