Creative Carte Blanche challenge -- Think outside the box.

I have just found a challenge called Think out of the box, and this month they ask you to use a cigar box. A friend gave me one ages ago, and I have altered it with an Indian style theme. The top is made with paper, and on the inside, silk paper with an Indian lady made with paper mounted on a skeleton leaf. I lined the box base with red silky fabric and the altered lots of small boxes with paper, charms, metal, and gems. Inside the small boxes I placed more charms, a small hand made book and a few brooch pieces. I scattered some gems on the fabric.
