This will now fit inside my bezel so nicely! To which I added some necessary bling.
I also had this cool flower finding....it actually is a "clasp" for a necklace but I felt it fit nicely here. Again I used my trusty nail polish! Please excuse that atrocious crusty looking thumb!
And finally, (are you still awake?) here is the finished box! I just love it! Actually, I am pretty glad that I decided ahead of time to keep it! Fyi...those are chains that I glued to the perimeter of the box lid. This was my first time working with leather and truly I didn't know how to finish it off. So with the jagged leather edge = necessity became the mother of invention/creation!
