My hubby brought home this tin box after travelling in one of the local flights. The box looked the right size to hold small items, so I decided to change the tin box into a treasure chest.
First I stuck the pattern paper to the lid with Mod Podge decoupage glue....once it dried I applied couple of top coats. After it completely sealed and dried, I painted it with varnish to give a glossy look. Same way I finished the inside and outside of the box.
Decorated the sides with pearls and ribbon and to the base I adhered 4 large beads. Added the clear crystal flower and the handmade small mulberry roses to the lid. I was looking for a center piece , that's when I found Lord Ganesha (considered patron of arts) pendant in my junk jewel collections, he gave a nice finishing touch and also added 2 more pendants with chain links.
At last I added the double loop bow which I made with the help of my index and middle finger....who needs a bow maker now.
Now my Treasure Chest is ready for my crafty treasures.
