Altered watch box into gift box *

September challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and the theme for the pink team is make/altered gift box/bag so lots of scope for this challenge.  Could even make own gift wrap though I am not that adventurous lol.   The theme for the purple team this month is New Beginnings an so much scope for that too.  Really fun challenges.

Anyway for this month I have altered an old watch box to use for giving a watch to my daughter in law for her birthday.  Just hope she likes it lol.  I didn't take a pic of the box - naughty me but have found a pic on the net of a similar one.  The outside is vinyl and padded top

I painted initially with gesso, then some pink paint, crackle medium and white paint over the top.  I decoupaged the really gorgeous napkin of a really cute girl.  What I like about the effect is you can see the pink crackles through the girls face - tis wicked! well I think so anyways lol.  I used a pretty daisy trim round the base of the box, mulberry flowers, leaf trims from applique and pearl trim for the top and for bottom front I put together a daisy type flower made from various trims. Now for the pics 



I do hope you like my gift box and I hope you will pop on over to Eclectic Ellapu and join in with the challenges this month
