My New Cabinet Card Box

For a long time I have had my old cabinet cards stored in an old
ciger box on my work table.
I have been wanted to decorate it for some time now, so when
I signed up for the Artist Class I decided
to try Lori´s tutorial for her beautiful box.

this is my edition of the box.
Not at all as beautiful as Loris´s
but I´m kind of satisfied with it anyway

I have been working with cream and black lately for the Christmas Collection
and wanted the box to go with the same theme

so I added black string to the edges

and an old key hole on the front
to match the cabinet cards

and some lace too ofcourse :D

Now it´s on my new shelf
only waiting for more creations to come.
What do you think.
Have a beautiful sunday
