A gift box for a great friend!!!

I had to prepost this little gift box! As my friend who this is for usually looks at my blog before she goes to work in the morning!! SO I had to wait to post it after she would had left her house!! I haven't put anything it it yet!! We decided to do our gift giving after Christmas!! I know the only thing she wants is more copics and refills, so I will either order her some, give her a gift card or just give her money to buy her own. I would rather give her something she would use and wants!!
I purchased this wooden hinged box at JoAnn and painted it in a dark creamy color. Then I added some DP around it that I inked up the edges with some Tim Holts Ranger distressing ink in walnut. I took off all the hardware before painting it.
This cute little girl is Lottie from the Twinkle Tots collection at The Greeting Farm. I colored her with copics and layered her twice and then went back with a third layer only on some of the image. The top of the box is recessed about 1/2" or so. I added some glitter glue around the inside of the top and on the top edges of the box. I used a spellbinders pendant die and layered it on top then added my layered little Lottie image and added some Prima flowers to the top and front of the box. I also added some glitter glue to the flowers and the Chipboard! The Friend chipboard is from FancyPants and is coverd in ink then covered in and aqua glitter glue.

I can't remember the maker of the DP at the moment, but it is some that I purchased at my LSS!
Here is another view of this beautiful box!! I think it turned out just perfect!!
And here is the inside that I covered in the same paper( double sided DP). I added another Lottie colored image that I cut out and glued to the bottom inside of the box. I used a lot of pop dots on the top to give a lot of the wow factor!!
Thanks for coming by today!! I hope you enjoyed my little gift box!
I am trying to get my 12 days of sketches cards done with TGF!! Hopefully I will get them done, I am only on day 3!! Wish me luck because I will need it to finish in time!!
