This is sort of a birthday, er, "card" I made for my hubby by altering a pressboard AOL box thingie. I used some Johnny Cash lyrics as a poem that is read in parts as the box is opened.

Here's the lid top:



The inside lid top:



The inside of the box itself:



And when you untie the ribbon on the little book:



This was made with real vintage sheet music, some fake vintage ephemera, jewels, embossed felt, etc. I may eventually seal it with modpodge, but for now I like it the way it is.

Thanks for looking!

Fantastic box! I love how it all comes together so nicely, and it so sweet.

I love Cash too. After reading the lyrics, I just had to listen to the song. Cheesy
