Graphic 45 (Botanical Tea) Altered Box

I've had this box on my shelf seems like forever and when I ordered the Graphic 45 Paper Stack I couldn't resist altering this cute trinket box.  I painted the inside a pretty pink to match the roses in the paper and added a  small mirror encased in lace and pearls to add a sweet touch to the inside. I left all the original hardware the same as it gave that aged old world kind of feel. All the pretty Wild Orchid Crafts roses adorns the top with some green floral wire swirls. On Either side of the flowers on top are chipboard cut outs from the Trio Collection. Nestled sweetly among the flowers are some stamen and little rhinestone accented acrylic flowers. I also added a Crystal Aurora Borealis Heart and a lovely key charm to add a touch of whimsy. I added some pearl trim and lace on the edges.

I hope enjoy this lovely box!
Have a wonderful week!
