Ford Lighted Box

This is a wooden keepsake box that I altered with paper, stickers, and a light on the front!  The light mechanism is by Tim Holtz.  I changed the fixture, though, to look a bid more industrial.  I used the inside of a cheap flashlight, and painted it and the cord silver.  The fact that the light actually works made it pretty cool!



Tags and pictures in the envelope on the back side.


I painted the edges and papered the sides, and lined the inside of the box with felt.  I glued the battery down so that nothing moves when you open the box.

Overall, I was pleased with the project and with the pictures my husband had taken of my son went perfectly on it!

I hope you enjoyed looking!  
Check back for more projects soon!!
