Quick little gifts

Here is a quick project I did as a gift for a friend who recently had surgery. I wanted to cheer her up, and let her know I was thinking of her. It only took me an hour to complete the box and cross from start to finish.
Ten Second Studios recently come out with a line of paint and patinas that are just AMAZING!! I have been dying to try them out.I covered one of those plain jane jewelry boxes that you can get at the Dollar Tree. They come in a package of three or four for a dollar. The sides of the box are covered in a 7 Gypsies tape and I used scrap copper I had laying around, made by Ten Second Studio, on the top of the box. After getting it all assembled, I sprayed the top of the box and flower with the TSS copper patina. Then I let it sit overnight, and the next morning it had these elegant shades of greens & teal. Then, I soldered this fun little cross necklace to fill the box. The cross is also a class I am teaching in April at The Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie, Texas.
