I was in a box swap recently and we had to make our own box from scratch...not alter or decorate a ready made one. I made a standard 'pizza' type box with the lift up lid and strengthened it with a thick piece of card top and bottom. The papers I covered it with are the fabulous 'Ella Blue' from GCD studios. I can't remember where I got the little lock charm or the key but it fastens with one of the Basic Grey mini magnets, which are perfect for this kind of thing. The embellies on the top are done with Marianne dies (you've got to love her dies).
In case you're wondering why it's full of Galaxy bars it's because it went to a friend in France who loves the stuff but finds it hard to get hold of. I have to be honest, when I'd finished this, I really didn't want to part with it, lol.
