A cracking little box

Today is the day I do a tutorial on Gingersnap Creations, and I was really pleased with the little box that I created for the tutorial. I have found photographs really often do not do some artwork justice, and this little beauty is extremely tactile, so much so that if I touch it anymore  all the crackle will fall off! Do go and check out how I made it, and at the same time have a look at some of the other brilliant tutorials and challenges on Gingersnap!
Have a creatively sunny Saturday
