BTBD PANDORA’S BOX

Greetings! It's time for a new challenge with the Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls! Since it is the 3rd Thursday of the month, this is our altered challenge. So what do you have to do this time around? Well, our challenge is Pandora's Box. So please make a project with a box. You can make the box yourself, or use a store bought one that you can alter. But be sure to keep it creepy!
Here is some background information on Pandora and this special box...
Pandora was the first woman created. The Gods and Goddesses, honored her, by bestowing various gifts upon her. For example, Zeus gave her the gift of curiosity. Because of said curiosity, when she was given a box (or jar), although she was told not to open it, she did. And out of it escaped the evils of the world. She quickly closed the box, but it was too late. All had escaped except for one thing. Hope.
You do not have to base your project on the above story. But you can if you'd like!
I took a box I got from a dollar spot somewhere some Itkupilli images a little crafters spackle some paint and mod podge and you have a decorated box!!!  I was making it for my daughter for her birthday and it was going to hold a key chain that I was going to have my friend Alison make for her, but alas we haven’t sold the house yet so no car yet.  She’s ok with that for now!!! LOL 
Anyway here are some pictures of it!

You will have 2 weeks to complete this challenge. A winner will be chosen and will receive the fang-tatsic badge in our sidebar. If you need more inspiration please head over to the BTBD blog to see what everyone else has made and to play along!!!

I am entering this into the Smudgy Antics BINGO Challenge using skull, black and distressed....

Love this box! And I love that you were going to put car keys in it! Great idea. I think the images you chose are very cool, I know Jewel will love it, if you haven't already shown it to her.
