Gift box for my friend - yes I do have one! *

A friend of mine has a birthday coming up and am totally at a loss at what to give her so I thought I would do the packaging first and then buy the gift to fit and a very small gift it will be lol!

I found a small wooden box in my stash which I gessoed and painted cream.  I wiped DI around the edges to age it.  I then used papers from my stash to cover the sides, top and base.  These were distressed and inked.  I used various stamps for the sides.  For the top I used a Fernli design frame which I finished off with alcohol ink and brushed over using glossy accents.  I covered the oval insert with the same papers and stamped another quote.  I covered it with a thick layer of glossy accents to give a glass effect.

That's it all done except for buying the gift and making a card lol

Thank you for joining me today and please call again sometime.
