Memory Box


During yesterdays bank holiday I decided to turn this box.....

into this....


It's the first time I have altered something quite so big. It was a lot of space to fill! This is for a friend who recently retired. She told me that she would love to have a memory box for all her bits and bobs. I hope she likes it. I certainly enjoyed making it and I'm going to be trying different variations like a sewing box and a baby box. So keep your eye out for those.

I am entering this weeks challenge over on Cupcake 'alter it'.
