The box is made of pine, the lid has been painted with acrylic paint to accent the colors used in the heart and the bottom has been stained a dark charcoal color (to accent the black canvas that the heart was cross stitched on). The staining of the box allows the natural grain of the wood, plus, some minor imperfections in the wood to come through. We think this adds lots of character and makes each box one-of-a-kind! Wood letters that spell "Amor" (translates to: Love), have been painted with acrylic paint to accent the colors used in the cross stitched heart as well (and they've been securely mounted to the box). The bottom inside of the box has been painted wtih a pink metallic acrylic paint, which gives it a nice sheen. The box measures 5-1/4" x 5-1/4" x 2-3/4" and the heart has been carefully mounted inside of the lid. Underneath the heart, some batting was used to give the heart some lift, a puffy feel and a somewhat three dimensional feel. The box opens easily and latches closed easily. The entire box has been varnished with a satin uv finish for protection.
The bottom of the box has been signed and dated by the artist.
Amor Keepsake Box
The last photo represents what this box can hold. In the photo, twenty-seven tea light candles fit nicely in the box (with a little room to spare).
