first edition blessings box

Hi all
I have made a little blessings box using  my new first edition J'adore papers and tonic oriental lilly dies...The idea behined the box is ...every time something nice happens to you ...write it down and date it and pop it in the box and on new years eve this year you can take them out and read them and count your blessings...sweet.
.I covered a plain brown box with pva and J'adore papers.I added a nestie scalloped circle lid topped with oriental lilly flowers made using tonic dies..i love these flowers ,you may have noticed....!!!!, I added  punched butterflies and the ribbon and pearls are from meiflower crafts
