Candle-giftbox

Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge is into its second week of the photoinspiration Challenge.
If you haven't checked it out yet, you still have some days to play along there.
I've made this candlebox to inspire you to join us - I hope you like it...

This box is quite large, about 6 X 3", and the back is 9" (!), but that is because I had to make it fit the christmastreebookmark I've had for ages. I really mean ages - 10- 15 years I guess, at least... But immidiately as I saw the inspirationpicture I knew that now was the time to use it - just had to look through a few books to find it - LOL
It doesn't show very well in the picture, but on the tree I've glued down lots of goldenbrown halfbeads, and in the corners of the box I used red blingstones.
Around the box I used goldlace, goldcoloured pearlstrings and red bows.
The papers are from Karen Foster (old, that too).
The next picture show how the christmastree continues down inside the box - I decorated the inside as well...
Come on into Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge to see what the rest of the DT have made to inspire you, and join our Photochallenge :)
