My First Box Project

Afternoon everyone
I have finally finished my Box, didn't take long really, three days on and off.
I started off with the 'A5 Box with Drawer' by 'Candy Box Crafts Ltd' that I purchased from
'Pink Tulip Creations Ltd' who are a supplier of Candy Box Crafts amongst lots of other big makes and brands, please check them out.
Once I assembled the box, which is easy and straight forward to do, I painted the inside of the compartments with white acrylic, I covered the outside using the beautiful papers from the 
(The box has a hinged top compartment and a draw)
...I distressed the edges of the papers using Ranger Distress Inks Victoria Velvet, Vintage Photo and Walnut stain
I also Distressed the lace ...
... and the flower embellishment
I made the embellishment by using white faux roses which I distressed using Victoria Velvet and Walnut Stain on the small ones and just Walnut Stain on the large ones, I did this to try and blend with the roses on the paper design.
I added skeleton leaves (Distressed with Walnut Stain, carefully) and Metal Leaf Embellishments
by 'Creative Expressions' which I shaped.
Also by 'Creative Expressions' are the Metal Corner Embellishments that I used all over the box,
on the top ...
... sides and front

I hope you like the end result, first one that I have done but not the last that's for sure, I really enjoyed this project and at the end of the day that's what is important :-)
