I found this little box with a big cut on the top so I got it for $3.00. My friend gave me a bag of leather scraps and I went to town. I had to strip all the vinyl off and remove the hardware.
I used Helmar 450 glue (my fav as always) to attached the leather and lace. It dries completely clear.
I found this old cowboy pic at our local antique store and the frame came from goodwill. I dropped the frame and concho in a plastic bag and dropped a couple of drops of butterscotch alcohol ink in. (Tim Holtz style) Filled in the picture with Sakura 3d Crystal Lacquer. I added the Prima crystal embellishment and stuck it all down with 450.
I love experimenting with different textures and I think I'll keep this box!
