Wedding Gift Box

I must be the only person who receives containers in the mail from relatives. This one had cookies in it at some point, but not when I got it! Meaning, I got it minus cookies and to alter. Which of course didn't mean I didn't still want COOKIES!

The base of this box was sprayed first with black spray paint because I wanted a blank slate. Then I covered the base with white gesso so I could alter it. A bit of a stamp pad inked up the edges and then some silver spray paint. I have been raiding the hubby's stash of paint lately since not using it results in things just drying up and there are countless cans from various projects. 

Anyhow, stocking up for that Junk2Funk show. I thought with summer around the corner, we're headed into Wedding Season..this might make a nice gift box. The green doilies came from Marilyn and I added a bit of dye to give them a bit more color. A few rolled flowers from a project a while back. 

And, just another quick shot of the front. I have one of my book plates on there using another one of those German stickers & crackle glue. Stop back for a tutorial on how to to make them on Thursday. I decided to call them Clear Vintage Page Charms...

A quick tag made up of scraps and a silver doily from my stash completes it!

Just a sparkly fun box!
