1 of 2 posts for today- Treasure Box...

I have 2 posts for today, I was hoping to have this one done yesterday but life got in the way a bit so here it is today.
I love treasures, and I love treasure boxes. I am the type of person that when I see an unusual box I try to figure out a way to reuse it. This little beauty started with this:
Cool little box, 4 different patterns of scrapbook paper, Krylon pink spray paint, Martha Stewart Modge Podge, Elmers glue (2 kinds), ribbon, buttons and a trinket, whew, that was a mouth full!

Here we are in process:
First I cut the paper to fit the box, then I sprayed glue on the back and placed the paper on the box.
Then I modge podged it so that it would stay on forever and glued the stubborn pieces with Elmers. I Put holes in the top for the bow so it has a little handle.

After decorating it, this is what I came up with:
Isn't it cute?!
Here is the inside:
And here are some close-ups:
(Sorry the quality of some of the pics is less than ideal, but I wanted you to see as much as you could, hopefully someday I will get a better camera).

So what do you think? I hope you like my little treasure box because I think it might be filled with some fun treasures as part as my 100 readers giveaway that will hopefully be coming up soon!
