Happy New Year & January's Challenge.

Wishing all my friends a Very Happy and Healthy New Year.
Over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit their first challenge for 2017 is now always there is no theme and no paper all mixed media, recylced and altered art is acceptable.
My project this month is a box I altered for a bracelet that I bought for my grandson's girlfriend.
I was unable to buy a box,so rooted through my stash and found one that would be suitable.

 In the base of the box I glued a circle of sponge and covered it all in some black satin material, gluing it in places around the sides with hot glue.

On the lid I added a wide strip of ribbon, securing it with double sided tape and then made a liner from navy blue card

To dress the top I created a flower using lace, a fabric centre, finishing with a bow and pearl gem.
My grandsons girlfriend was delighted with the box as much as she was with the bracelet.
