So this is what has been keeping me busy for the last month or so... I finally got up the courage to cut into my beloved Graphic 45 "Voyage Beneath the Sea" papers!
The box is wood ~ 6 in. W, 3.5 in. D, with a domed top. Supply list below ~

You would be awarded an Artist's First Place Medal if you entered that into an art gallery, my creatively talented friend!! That is most definitely a "Treasure". Just perfect and beautiful. Such pleasure to marvel at. xox
