Mom's Gift Card Box

I made this box by coving a balsa box with my
Stampin Up Paper and Pro 31 Designs flowers,
one acrylic clear flower, a pearl spray,
 teeny tiny flower trim and ribbon.  I painted the
handle and then glued on a button. 

I covered the whole outside of the box and
whitewashed the inside.  Silly me forgot to take
a picture of the inside.  I wanted to keep it simple as much
as I was tempted to add more to it.  I liked it with less.

I just wrote out the word Mom.  I debated stamping
the word but decided to just use a pen.
Mom loved it!  I made it to put a gift card inside
but it would not fit! :(  Oh well, she still loved it!
This is my first attempt at altering one of those balsa
boxes but I will be doing it again.
If you would like to purchase some trims or flowers!
