The box was made from card measuring 21cm by 18cm and I used a box maker to get the dimensions right. The lid of the box has been sponged with Tim Holtz marmalade distress ink, then stamped with a smaller paisley design using the pink staz-on and then over the top of that I have dragged the edge of the marmalade distress ink pad to make the line effect. The centre of the box has been decorated with the Paisley mandala that was used as the focal point for the necklace. I have painted the layers of the mandala using inktense pencils and then sponged over worn lipstick distress ink to the pink areas and marmalade distress ink to the orange areas. Peeled paint distress ink was used on the leaves. I finished off the mandala with dots of diamond stickles and mounted the whole thing on the box lid with silicone glue.
The box in-lay was made from a piece of card measuring 21cm by 18cm and scored like the box base but I added an extra score line so that a shallower box could be made as I folded it around the back making a sort of lip so that it rested in the base easily. I made cut outs for the necklace to thread through. The in-lay was then sponged with marmalade distress ink and then dabbed with the worn lipstick. Both the box and in-lay were decorated before being glued.
