Dots, strips and a tag

Hello all!

How are you friends? I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. Today I want to share a box I made recently. I kept the theme of ICR's new challenge in my mind while making it. So here it is with the details. Its a Trinket box with a window and a lock.


Here is the top view.

I bought few readymade paper roses and fused bead strings and coincidentally they were matching so I choose the color Lavender and its shades. The frame was lying with me for a long time, so thought making a window for the box. I weaved the quilling strips to make the mesh. 



I bought these flowers at a local handicraft exhibition. Decorated them with some fused beads string.
The front view.


 The front has a lock. I used a small square piece of Velcro and glued a paper flower on one side to hide the Velcro  I used very small piece of it so that it opens with a little pull without tearing anything :D


and here is the cute small tag to write names of the giver and receiver.


Apart from ICRC12, I want to participate in following challenges too.

Crafty ribbons challenge - Anything but a card
Fussy and fancy challenge - Make a gift/Anything but a card
Squiggle stamps - Anything but a card

That's it folks. Please leave a comment if you liked it or any other suggestion and feedback. 
Thanks for looking!


Love,
Priya...
