Very nice! Can you tell us more about it?

Did you use poly clay for the top?? I love the lining. How did you do that?

Thank you! First, I painted the box blue and added some orange/brownish color with a texture sponge. The flower is made from polymer clay. I usually don't work with clay too much so it is not my best area, but I had some and thought I should try it out Smiley The petals aren't very smooth, but I figured out that for some reason, I liked it better that way. I glued them on with some basic craft glue. Next, I used a flower stencil to add the flowers and a few hemp braids on the side (I love hemp!). Finally, I covered it all with a light gloss seal. I had a lot of trouble with the inside and may try to fix it up a bit later. I tried looking around the internet for some tips on adding cushion to a box but couldn't really find anything. I used basic craft glue to glue three sides of the fabric to the box then used the stuffing from an old teddy bear (trying to be resourceful!) then glued the fourth side down (which is where things got tricky and messy!) I would also love to hear any tips anyone might have about how to add the cushion to the inside! Smiley
