My 31 Day Challenge - Day 2

Today's project- Vintage Altered Box
I bought this box (paper mache) from Hobby Lobby.  I painted it English Navy, glued torn pattern paper on top and then used a medium antiquing stain over the entire box.  I then glued vintage findings to the top.  The rhinestone flourish is by Prima Marketing (as are the ones on the sides of the box).  The roses are from the Dollar Tree.  The feet of the box were made from wooden flower pots painted blue (and stained) and then glued to the bottom.  
Pics of the sides:

This will be going to a friend in a swap with me.  Thanks for looking!
