#129 Purple Trinket Box
Here is another piece that is hard to give up. I used a basket weave cane for the background and after blending purple with white into what is called a Skinner blend, I created the flowers. Going for a monochromatic look, I didn't add any other colors to the mix. Afterward, I embellished the main flower with one of those high end rhinestone crystals. It was a subtle, but a needed (in my opinion) addition the piece. The measurements are 3 3/4 by 2 1/4. As you might have figured out by now, this is one of those tins that hold the famous little mints everyone loves. I was lucky enough to have a friend who collects the boxes and she shared them with me.
