Found these boxes at Walmart for $.99 - jazzed it up a bit. Mixed Lumiere with red-russet Pearl Ex & covered the box lid. Spritzed lightly with Krylon black webbing spray then edged scalloped box lid edge in Krylon copper leafing pen. Sealed box lid with Krylon low odor matte sealant spray. Dabbed VersaMark pad onto top edges of box lid & heat embossed classy copper ep. Mica tile was heat embossed with classy copper, then seperated into two mirrored units. Then Lumiere mixed with red-russet Pearl Ex and Lumiere mixed with super copper Pearl Ex were dabbed on one side of mica tile, married up other side of tile & schmooshed together. Eyelets added & fiber threaded through. Mulberry paper was attached used Perfect Paper Adhesive (PPA). Mica tile is attached using pop up style glue dots. Box base was randomly stamped with creamy caramel & close to cocoa classic inks.

Oh yeah - the box feet are large red jasper tumbled nuggets!
