Alter it monthly

My sister lost her beloved cat and wonted a very special place

to keep him close to her,i had seen something like this in a shop

so decided to have a go at making her one.

Firstly i painted the box with acrylic black paint ,then using stamps

i stamped using versamark ink then embossed it with gold in the pattern

i desired,my theme was ancient Egypt as her cat looked just like this one

but he was cream.

The inside was black,and the inside of the top i embossed a symbol,

(which means ever lasting life)

I got a cat tag with his name on it and placed it in the circle.

i added a small amount of blue around the bottom of the box to match the cat and

to pull it all together .I attached the cat with 3m glue.

Egypt is one of my favourite topics. interests me intensely and this has a real genuine Egyptian look to it.
