Before and after

I'm not fast.... This project was in my head for a long time and it took some time to do it. I was unable to make a decision how to organize the trays. Finaly after I don't know how many try, I glued everything together and painted it black, but first I wanted to painted it vintage white.

After that, which paper I wanted to use. So I used October Afternoon and 7Gypsies. And here is
the result.

A little close-up. The thing that hold the 3 photos together is not a real receipt holder, do you know what it is?

I cut the bird from thin wood and stamped it with Stazon. I made a mini chalkboard. And I also made the tinest mini photo holder I ever made. It measures 1 x 1½. It is the one with the crossword on the front cover over the ruler. It contains 8 tiny family photos.
So did you find the answer of the faux receipt holder? Yes, it is a mouse trap. I cut it and painted it black before to glued it to the box!
Have a creative friday!
