Vintage love box or all my junk - same box anyway



This used tea box was given to me about 3-4 years ago and it's not a real vintage one so it can be recycled without any second thought. So here it is- my new junk beauty- after long way of painting, cracking, molding, distressing, inking and half an hour of all the rest.. (the embellishment part was the easy one).
As these Graphic 45 die cuts were in my closet for a year and a half- they became some kind of vintage- so here they are, together with this Love chipboard - 4 years old from some not more existing company (Srap works)- distressed too, and EK leather letters- very old ones, a real vintage button and one J. Bowlin altered with letters button , not so old, stamped clock, old Daisy D'S brad, 3 ribbons and 2 Prima flowers- the red one was misted as the color was too pink and not really red.
And I am going to use it for all my Tim Holtz metal parts- just to keep them all together in one box-as I have a lot of them (every single kind of, but one package only and if it's gone- it's gone forever).And now for the challenges for these one: can't fit fall or OWH all over the web- but fit some of the others
