us a black base for a card.

Then I went for Gold and Blue.

And Last but not least a Black and grey base with a beautiful 
red spay of flowers.

Kailey's Keepsake Box
This is a cigar box, for a Babies keepsake box, 
I made her sisters (Maddison) last year

To start with my lovely hubby gave the cigar box a bit of a rub down and fitted the feet, hinges and the catch.

When I got the cigar box back I stripped it of the parts so I could give it a wipe over and paint all the edges.

This view shows the ornate feet in place as well as the papers & lace used...

...And here how the inside was decorated.

In its completed state it was embellished with the name Kailey and selected colours to personalise the keepsake.
