Hobbycutz Challenges - Fathers Day/Masculine

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Hobbycutz Challenges.  Our theme for this fortnight is:
Fathers Day/Masculine

We have two great sponsors this time around - Fairy Dust Crafts and Iva Nova Chest.  Just pop over to the challenge blog for full details of the prizes on offer and to enter the challenge.

Now for my inspiration project this week I have done something a bit different - an altered box.

This box started out as a plain wooden box available from Hobbycutz.  I painted it with a light coat of acrylic paint and sanded it back to give an aged look.  I then added gilded flakes around the edges.  The little character and the pirate mat are from one of our sponsors Fairy Dust Crafts.  Some metal corners, gems and peel off letters completed the top of the box.

For the sides of the box I added some more gilding flakes, some ribbon and gems.  
I thought that this would make an ideal gift box for a Fathers Day gift.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your creation.  For more inspiration check out the awesome work of my teamies over at Hobbycutz Challenges.

Mags, what a fabulous Treasure Chest for Dad. Love the gilding and the gems. I wonder what a Dad would put inside it! Probably spoil it by putting oily washers and rusty nails. LOL

Thanks for sharing with us
