Altered Box for Hannah's Intern!

Our school interns are at the end of their term and we are planning their gifts!  Hannah and I decided to make a pencil box that her intern could use in her real classroom next year.  She came up with the idea to make two of the sides chalkboard so that Ms. Parker could write reminders and class items!  How sweet and clever is that!?  We found a spray can of Krylon Chalkboard paint (this stuff is amazing)!  We added some paper and embellishments and of course some glitter and this is our box:
Supplies:
1/4" Sticky Tape (P K Glitz)
Glitter Glitz: Poppy Jasper and Sea Mist (P K Glitz)
Apple Silhouette w/WonderFilm Pieces (P K Glitz)
Font: CK Ali
Jewels: Kaiser Craft
Paper: DCWV and K&CO
Punches: Label Two, Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
Ribbon: Provo Craft
Flower Embellishments and Buttons:  Making Memories
