Altered Box



I've made this little altered box as a birthday present for a friend. It's wooden and was originally white with a sickly flower motif on the lid. I sanded and Lumiered it and added the tin heart to the lid. Inside I added the metal globe (from a keyring) surrounded by those irritating ping everywhere accent beads! Then I just added the quote and pic. It's inside is about 3/4" deep so the scan isn't very good.
