Mother's Day Altered Tea Box - Ruby Rock-It

Hi everyone! Happy Mother's Day! Today I'm sharing a gift idea for Mother's Day on Ruby Rock-It's blog and I thought it would be fun to share it here too. 

A couple of years ago my mother passed away so I can't make something for her, but recently I inherited a few of her everyday jewels. If she were alive right now I would have made this jewellery box for her, but as it happens I've decided to create this box for me, to keep her jewellery in it. These jewels are very very special to me and I'm so glad I finally found the perfect collection of papers, die-cuts, wood veneers and jewels to create this special box for my special treasure.  

Here's what I started with: a very simple and inexpensive tea box, with two compartments on the inside:

But when I was finished it looked like this:  

I just adore the colors of this collection! Here's photo of the top:

And this is how the back looks like: I love the 3D butterfly stickers!

And a photo of the inside: 

And a closer look at the top: aren't those bling borders just awesome?! 

And one last look from yet another angle:

I really love how this project turned out! Hope you'll give it a try too!

Here's a list of Ruby Rock-It Bella! Fundamentals products I used:
Heritage paper collection
Heritage Florals
Heritage Die Cut pad
Heritage 3D Stickers
Heritage Die-Cut Pack
Heritage Wood Veneer
