Wine Gift Box

I saw these flowers yesterday at Michael's and had to do something with them. I knew this wine box would look very elegant with a flower topper. After it is given as a gift it is pretty enough to set out as a decoration. The wine charms I made using swarovski crystals, silver chain and silver ear wire hoops. I added a bit of seam binding lace to finish off the edges of the box and tucked a few eggs into the flowers. If I can find a beautiful decorative bird I may need to add it to the top. Or maybe I'll just have to do another box. ;) Since we have a wine cellar, we give alot of wine as gifts. I always try and include a handmade topper or charms with the wine. It is overcast here today so I had to set the box right on the windowsill to have good lighting. Sorry for the background 'noise'.
