Keepsakes box and tag

Hi all 
I recently made this keepsakes box with a mini tilda stamp. 
Here is the look

I loved creating this one it was one heck of a crafty ride. 
There are a lot of sizzix dies I have used here. 
Which I will will be listing down in the supplies Column .
I UPCYCLED a Bhel Puri (Indian Snack) Box into this lovely Shabby Chic keepsake box !
I loved the idea totally , lately shabby chic is all im doing .... :) seems like i found my style !

The lovely frame u see here is a wooden one by Itsy bitsy !
I distressed it and added some crackle accents to it.
I found the perfect sentiment saying Dream come true scrap in my stash which i have used here.
Again all crackled up ! 
This is how the box opens up ! 
There is some lovely single knot here that goes around the box.
The brown die cut u see beneath the knot is the lovely 
 658951 Sizzix-thinlits-die-ornate-hanging-sign
you really should check it out ! Its an awesome die to have.

How do u like the tag??
I used the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 5PK - Frames, Decorative #2 
for cutting the top of the tag .
All the flowers are handmade , I am running low on my tiny roses so I sat down recently to make some of my own prima lookalike roses I think they came out really well. 
I did take a lot of time surprisingly to think this one through....
I somehow lost my mojo In between ... :( but I guess I am coming back .
Got a few new things to show u soon.
