Upcycled gift box

I have had this chocolate box lying around since Valentines Day, and I can tell you now that I ate all the chocolates on the day itself! It was not suitable to use as it is, as it clearly shouts "Valentines"! As it was a nice size and not covered in labels, I decided to upcycle it, for that time when I need a gift box at the last minute.

Before
I have covered the lid in brown paper - the sort used to wrap parcels and added a piece of really lovely paper on which the white swirls gradually thin out across the paper. I then added a band of black felt flowers and two little pictures, as shown:
After

and it could be used as packaging for one of my necklaces.
