25th Anniversary Wishing Well
I chose a box which I planned to cover and decorate. I thought it needed some weight so I created a false bottom into which I added some heavy material. The false bottom was hot glued into the bottom of the box. I then wrapped the box with silver gift wrap. First the bottom then the top. Where the papers joined I added 2 lengths of brown silver edged ribbon held in place with double sided tape. I created a large bow with silver ribbon and adhered that to the front of the box. It is held in place with Zots. To the hole in the top I added some silver tape to make the edges smooth. I added a die cut Stampin Up Top Note in Chocolate Chip card stock. I cut out the shape of the hole with an E-xacto knife then adhered the die cut onto the top of the box. I added 2 SU Sweetheart punchies from the adhesive tape on both corners. I will be placing it on a glass platter with a white paper doily to set off the box. I'm happy with the way it turned out.
