Princess Jewelry box

Oh this was so fun..creating something new out of something old.  I found this jewelry box at a charity shop and altered it using paper and embellishments and Magnolia's Tilda. 

This jewelry box was made for Magnolia Down Under Challenge..which was making anything but a card..alter something.

I did a step by step on how i altered this box..but first here is the box:
































The sketch i used for the top is from Cardibilities:












What i did:
I used a jewelry box from a charity shop and covered it with paper and stripe tape.  Then i embellished it using gathered tulle, pom-pom trim, twine and a button.  Then i followed the sketch and colored Tilda..added some flowers, gems and glitter leaves.  I intend to decorate the inside for another challenge..so stay tuned... :)




Challenges:
Magnolia Down Under- Anything but a card/altered item
