The major design began with ensuring I could get a mug and a box of Earl Grey tea bags in the layout, and the odd bit of stationery!
I made sure every detail was attended to, including lining the hole in the front of the box. Texture paste and decoupage add dimension, with bronze gilding wax adding the bling.
I found the key hole plate in the craft shop and just had to have it to use on a project that was just mine.
I wanted this to describe both me and the box. To make the lettering even more unique I used 3 instead of E.
I loved the peel off glitter butterfly, leather textured tag and white silk flowers.
I feel really proud to be carrying the box through the office.
