A Birthday Box for Becca

So, a long while ago I put together this box for my niece and held off posting it until well after her birthday.

See her on the front there in a pretty pink dress?

This box truly was a labor of love.

It started life as a hand me down from Marilyn.

I was inspired to cover it with a pile of sheet music that came along in my Zeus & Zoe kit. Interestingly enough, the lid WAS lose enough to cover the seams with Tim Holtz music washi tape. I was pretty pumped!

Sprayed the inside with some silver spray paint and some black mist and let it run...It's a little bit of drama on the inside of the box, lol.

And do you see the handle on the top of this box? That is off the bathroom vanity downstairs. I replaced it when we moved in and really had the urge to keep it. It was pretty easy to poke a hole through the cardboard and install it.

Lots of fun bling on the top from my Zeus and Zoe kit, although the yellow mesh is from a bag of onions. Love to recycle. ;-)

And check out the card on the top? That too came in my kit and I wrote it out for Becca!

And here is a side view of the box. 

And, a close up of the awesome tag that came in my Zeus & Zoe Kit
