So let's get this going (and I can make the 11pm deadline and then fall totally exhausted into bed)! Allow me to lead on.....
Using the Tim Holtz Alterations Movers and Shapers Dies are SO FUN!!! I have (I think) every one of them and almost all of the inside cutters, too- THANX to some AWESOME Ladies who do the Destash Sales and get rid of their "junk" to become others' TREASURES !!
I used some plain old cardboard from Amazon trashed boxes my ChiefHubby saves for me from all his purchases. I started calling him "Mr. Amazon" because he LOVES the ease of ordering from that site for both home use and church use. You would NOT BELIEVE the stuff our UPS Driver has delivered here. He often starts to ask me...then just shakes his head and gives me that "look" we both have gotten used to sharing over the ChiefHubby's finds.
I wanted some 'old look' on here so I chose to use the TH GrungePaper and cut up some of my own "hardware".
(But: they usually have shipping "specials" and the ChiefHubby says it is "cheaper" for his wifey to order online and have it shipped....because my cart is SMALLER...???? What. Ever. *eyeroll*)
Close-up of the inside lid....
...and the inside bottom.
Detail of the stacked box cuts which I used TH Black Soot Distress Paint and then smudged some Distress Walnut Stain onto the top edge with my fingers...to distress the black a bit.
The bottom backside.
I used some tiny clear Velcro stickers to keep it shut.
The "lock" cut on the outside and the key being on the inside is just MY kinda oxymoron !!

THANX for stopping by!
I'm hoping to have time enough to share a "big reveal" of the flooring job we did on our home,
since "home flipping" is such a close thing to art and I really enjoy being a Crafter who is also a Homemaker! But, until then- the next FFChallenge will keep me busy in my mind- planning what I'll be doing in my studio! In the meantime....
Be safe & Happy Blogging !
