Altered Gift Box

Altered Gift box
Hello Blogger pals !! How are you enjoying your weekend ? Today I have an altered project to share with you all.I started with a Soap cover(Packing) that came with a herbal soap.I loved its shape and texture it had.
Soap cover
Its Eco-friendly as it is made from parts of palm tree which are compressed .It was very pale kraft in color so I gave a very thin coat of brown color as I wanted its texture to be visible.As its dried its not much flexible so have to handle with care,some rough handling it comes to pieces ! You can see the texture here

Soap Cover

It does not close all flat so I glued some jute twine which can be tied to close it .I layered a brown textured paper (from an invite) over it .

and then loaded it with flowers,leaves, colored gauze,small wooden beads to go with the natural them.

Side view
Finished off with a stamped and fussy cut sentiment .How is it ?? does it look like an decorated Easter Egg :D ?

Supplies :
Sentiment stamp and Memento Dew Drop Dye Inkpad-Tuxedo Black from Bits n Pieces
