Treasure Box

I wanted to make a special box this week and I had boughten a few of these and had them sitting around and thought it best to use em up! So this is actually a small white pencil box and I covered the entire box with this paper. I am sorry that I have no idea what type it is because someone sent me these 6x12 pieces of this designer paper but there is no name on it, I was just able to coordinate a couple of the designs to cover the entire box. I thought it was kind of vintage/collageish looking and so I went with it. The green ribbon is a velvet ribbon and then the tossle is another ribbon that I got 2 years ago in a clearance bin at Michael's. I just loved the colors and that is what made me purchase it (no use for it, no ideas for it, etc.... you know what I am talking about cause I know you do it too!) But it was perfect for this project! Now I have to tell you what I used to adhere the ribbon- it is called UHU Creativ and it is fabulous. I have used alot of products for ribbon but this glue is fabulous- it holds like anything! If you get a chance, try it out.
The image is of course Tilda with a tag that I got from Kelly over at KLSNS and I colored her with my copics. I used the greens, browns, and a little yellow because I am going to enter this in the ROP color challenge of Pink, Green and Yellow!
