Show Us Your Metal at Winter Wonderland

Hi Folks
Hope you are all managing to stay safe and warm with this very cold weather we seem to be having at the moment.  When that wind blows at the moment it feels so cold.  Unfortunately, my office is not the warmest so having to sit there with a heater next to me.  Roll on summer is what I say.  I am working tomorrow as well so not much crafty time this weekend.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland.  Our theme for this week is:
You can enter with any project you like and it doesn't have to be a christmas project.

Here is my inspiration project.

I received some chocolates in a lovely little gold box for christmas.  I decided to recycle the box and alter it.  I went around the edges of the box with some gilding flakes for a more aged look before adding some papers from my scraps box.  Around the top of the box I added some lace.  As you can see I used a metal flower and some metal leaves as embellishments on top of the box.  A couple of punched butterflies and some pearls finished the project.  

Our sponsor for the challenge at Winter Wonderland is:

with a prize of a £10 voucher for the winner.

Thanks for popping by and I am looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Winter Wonderland to check out the full challenge details.  Don't forget to take a peek at the lovely creations from my talented teamies.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Our Creative Corner - Christmas Leftovers
Artistic Inspirations - Anything goes
Not Just Cards - Anything goes

Hi there Mags, this is such a lovely box you have created from a chocolate box. The colours are lovely and it looks very elegant. Hope your job is going well. Weather here has been dreadful too. Today is the first calm day we seem to have had for a week or more but it is so.....cold. Hope your daughter had a fab birthday.
Hugs Jennifer xx
