Heartfelt Creations Prayer Box

Today is Heartfelt Creation Wednesday and I have an altered project to share with you.  This is a Laughing Cow cheese box that has been altered.  I spray painted this box with white spray paint found in the paint section at Walmart for $.97.    I even spray painted the inside of the box and lined it with batting.
The inspiration for this prayer box came to me from the Rosary you see in the picture.  This Rosary was given to me a while back and I had it in my jewelry box.  I dipped the Rosary in some silver polish so I could photograph it with this box and low and behold I found out it is silver with crystals.  The crystals are heavy and they really sparkle now that they have been cleaned.
Here is a list of products I used:
HCD 719 Cross and Lilies Die
Product ID: 354810 Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circle Large
Product ID: 354806 Spellbinders Standard Circle Large
Product ID: 159723 Dries Clear Glue

Spellbinders S4-265 Shapeabilities Cross Collection Die
Spelllbinders S4-269 Shapeabilities Lotus Pendants Die

Other: Rangers Antique Linen Distress Ink, Recollection Pearls, Ribbon, 1-1/4" Lace, White Cardstock,
White Fast Dry Spraypaint (Found at Walmart for 97cents), Cuttlebug Swiss Embossing Folder, Empty Laughing Cow Cheese Box. Batting if desired.

Just when I think you can't make anything more beautiful, you do. This is such a gorgeous box and rosary. I used to buy that cheese..haven't in a while. Should have saved all those boxes so I could TRY to make something this beautiful. Love those cross dies.
