Creative Challenge Altered Art Tea Box

Yeah I just finished my altered art tea box that I am to swap with my partner in the creative challenge altered art tea box swap. My partner is Cheryl, I am to exchange tea box's with her.
Here is my finished art, I will fill it with treats when I ship it off to Cheryl.

I took a photo of all sides and the top to show off the tea box. I used a tea box from PG Tips tea's England's #1 tea. It's a big box! well not huge but larger then some of the tea boxes you see in the store.

On top I used grunge board Tim Holtz and used distressed inks, brass wire to sew together the tops, brads, bows and the word dream, doll hair, pearls for eyes and a paper bow for the angels hair.  

Another view of the top of the box.



I left the top of the box with the company logo on it because I thought it was kind of cool to use a tea from England. They have a cute website, check it out.


I used some cute music sheet paper to put on the box with a purple ribbon all around the bottom of the box for the feminine touch.  


I left the back of the box as is for the story about the tea.


I decorated the box with Tim Holtz's Faucet to put over the top of the cute vintage girl, looks really cute I think added some random buttons.

Inside the box, minus goodies.

That was a lot of fun, makes you feel like a child again decorating a box, love this idea.
