Secret Key Cubby | Daisy's Jewels and Crafts

Good Morning, today I have turned the Picture Frame Book Box from Daisy's Jewels & Crafts into a discrete but pretty key cubby! 
                  
Paired with Crafter’s Companion papers and a blue tit sculpted from air dry clay, the scene pops from the front of the box.
