A Box For Mum

Have I ever mentioned what a talented lady my mum is...? She has, in the past, made some beautiful lace pieces - using the traditional bobbin method... now she uses tatting shuttles to create the most amazingly gorgeous tatting lace pieces of artwork - and they really are a work of art. She asked if I could make a box to store her shuttles in - and of course I said yes!
I really liked the rose papers (I think they're by 'CraftyBitz"), and when the box was all finished I used a whole lot of Gold Leaf Rub N'Buff - shabby chic just for my wonderful mum!
