A box of memories

This box is the perfect size for storing vintage photographs and mementos or perhaps baby's first shoes, or little treasures from your childhood. I finally got around to completing this project I started before my craft room clearup. I hadn't made a box for a wee while, and you know how I love boxes. This is a larger one than I usually it will hold a good amount. It started life as one of those papier mache box blanks you can buy. This one is an 8inch diameter box. The base of the box was painted with an ivory paint and then I stenciled through some punchinella with silver paint for this effect which I think almost has the look of shagreen or snakeskin.
