Egypt- tissue altered box

I have to do this Ancient world item for my Gingersnap DT this week (actully I am very late for it as I was without any ideas..)Then I saw this triangle Kleenex tissue package in my DD trash- and here it is- triangle- piramide- Ancient Egypt.
Evrything else was very easy- an old Egypt stamp set (Plaid)- never used,one big Eye of the Rie stamp I bought after we went to AIDA musical on Broadway about 5 years ago, some web prints- they are free- ancient or not?, some Ac frames, 7 Gypsies transpanency,lots of new distress inks, clear crackle paint, 3d glue, sand paper for the borders, cork for piramides- free hand cut and Hanna stamp wall stamping on it with Stazon, some more stamping and embossing and a polymer clay stamped magnet I did once and was perfect here.
The box can be used for school supllies- pens, pencils etc- also my DD are in college- but they can use it..
And as always- this is great for some web chalenges:
Anything goes for Paper players
Colors for OCC
Colors for Little paper shop
Circled for Frosted designs
Fall colors for Wild flower patch
Hot- decert, Egypt- can't be hotter- for Charisma
Old stamps- old Egyptian set- for Belli's
Charm for ABC- this metal huge piece on the open side of the box is an old pendant
Anything goes for Crafty little place
Shaped- the whole piramide is triangle shape- for Dare 2 u - and I used a few digis- these one with people
Distress for Artful inkables
Summer inspiration- what is more summere that Egypt and desert- for Crafty sentiments
Layers for Donna Den's of crafts
Not a card for Sisterhood of crafters
Anything goes for Your next stamp
Travel for Kardsandklay
Vintage for Bunny Zoe crafts

Not a card for Totally stampalicious
