Vintage Candy Box

Hi ya everyone!  I'm sharing a little altered box I made with you today here and at She's A Sassy Lady.  I missed a very special friends birthday and I just simply had to go over the top with something for her.  I had a Godiva Chocolate box that was empty but the box itself had a unique shape.  I kept it for altering.  I painted the entire thing with Gesso which is an acrylic primer paint.  I then used a tan acrylic to paint the outside.  I covered the majority of it with some beautiful papers and some flowers.  I created a video describing some of the simple things I did.
After finishing the box I filled it with all sorts of little goodies for her!  I hope she enjoys it and you did too!
Here are a few more pictures of the dimension.

If you are interested in any of the products please watch the video as I talk about where I got them!  Thanks so much and have a great day!
