Upcycled chocolate box

Hi there
I am sure you are enjoying the challenge and making projects for your dad this entire month.I am back with my second post of the month an upcycled box to hold pictures and tags.In short it has been upcycled to make a shadow box.hope you like my little experiment with the gorgeous papers from Lulupu and a lot of washi and mod podge.All of the above are available at Lulupu.The washi is so versatile and can be used on any medium.I have applied a layer of mod podge on washi covered tin.The tin wasn't closing with paper.and washi is beautiful enough to hide the tin and thin enough to make the lid fit snugly.serves the purpose.
The original box about to be transformed
Ok so we start with some beautiful pattern paper from Luupu and some mod podge

The inside of the lid is decorated with some more patterned paper and a picture
So this is how it looks with all the layering
The lid is embellished with some ruffled ribbon

The inside of the box has some more beautiful pattern paer .lace trim and sentiment.Perfect recipe for romance what say

Some tags also go inside the box

Linking it to PPS- Flowers and ribbon

 and also Lessology-For the love of fabric
I have used fabric laces and ruffled ribbon and the tin is recycled/upcycled
I hope I have inspired you to check out the new collection and old at Lulupu and find out for yourself how versatile you can be armed with Lulupu stuff.
