Ally's Angels DT-Challenge #36 "Fishball-box turn into a A Coffee Fund Money Box"

Hello dear followers,

I hope you have had a good extended summer so far!
I sure hope that you had a wonderful week, 
and have lots of fun things planned for the upcoming weekend!

We have a new challenge beginning this evening at Ally's Angels
The theme as always is ...... 
Anything Goes

Here is what I came up with...  

A Coffee Fund Money Box

I made this for my husbands truck garage,
he get visitors several times a day... and of course 
they drink a LOT of coffee

I've uI've used a fishball box.  As you see, I didn't open it the way it's ment to. 
I opened it in the bottom. Then I made a new bottom of thick paper and glued
                it on before I tied a string  a couple of turns around and ended it with a loop.t with a loop.

Then I painted everything twice with white gesso .
To get this shabby look I used walnut stain and black sooted ink.
I also stamped it with Tim Holtz tire pattern.

Finally I could start to decorate it. 
I stamped up some stamps from Tim Holtz stampers anonymous,
and some texts from Papirdesign. I also created a text on my computer
to get my own message.   Then  inked them all up
to get a shabby look before I glued them on.

This is all for now.

Hope you've been inspired by this project to join our Challenge #36

Thanks for stopping by,
Hugs from DT -Mariann-
