A little inspired for a box...

Yesterday, a guy came walking into he Art Republic asking for ideas to decorate a box. He wanted to give it to his gf and propose to her. Wow! So sweet!

I came back home feeling really inspired. So I wanted a garden, shabby, love and flowery feel kind of box. Not just any box I find, so I decided to make one. Thought that would be a great idea to house the ring that was given to me by my dd. Haha did you for a minute think I was going to propose to my bf? Nope! :)

So after all the hard work of pasting the pieces together, and getting the cover to fit the base, I finally got it somehow. Trust me, it took 6 hours for the box!

Base of Cover
Do you think that it would be appropriate for housing my wedding rings in future instead of the boring ring cushion? I love this project a lot. Somehow it has been some time since I last touched hands on a shabby look. Hope it still fits the bill. But having said  that, I must go get more flowers since I'm running out of stock after this box...

For the base of this box, I think i would include a heart charm coupled with our names. However, since that guy is so camera shy, I decided to take a photo before I add our names and photo to the base of the box.

Sweet magnolia holding the heart just tells me how much i sit around recently and thinking of him. He's now in Japan and every day is like forever for me. erks. How can that happen when we've been together for practically forever?
