What is inside the box?

 I have used my Debbi Moore Shabby Chic CD and my Crafter's Companion Boxer Board to make this decorated box.  To see what is hidden inside the box you will have to continue reading.  I have used a shell backing paper and various design sheets from the CD and used these elements to decorate the box.
  
 Here is the top of the box along with the beautiful lighthouse decoupage.  The sides of the box have been finished off with shells cut from the backing papers, inked around the edges and added on foam tape.  No the top of the box for some extra dimension and texture I have added some real shells as well.  I have used a brown and yellow Pan Pastel on the top of the box to make it look like sand.
  
  
Here are the four sides of the box with elements from the CD. 
Now is the reveal as to what is inside the box .............. it is a cover for a box of tissues.  I think this box is certainly nicer to be sitting on a desk or in a drawer instead of the plain and somewhat boring boxes they can come like normally.

I am entering this decorated box into the following challenges:

Kym,
This is a most beautiful Tissue box cover. At first I thought that is what it was, then I thought it might be something else. All that aside, it is such a vision of the seashore that one can almost sense the breeze. Thank you so much for taking time to post your very creative art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday in our 201st AG challenge!
Blessings and Hugs, Carole
