My partner is stationed in Germany so I'm getting this box ready for shipping today. I chose a more sturdy box and covered it with marigold yellow craft paint. I then used a lovey piece of paper from the contour paper pack and adhered it to the top sanding around the edges to give it a distressed look. I added. I also added some flat back green oblong shaped pearls. The addition of some "bling", lace flowers topped with buttons and pearls finished off the top. I then skirted the box with some two sets of lace. The bottom lace is sturdy crocheted with pink accents. The top lace is attached to a stretchy ribbon base in white. The final accent is a pearl and crystal flower. Green ribbon is placed around the top of the box to tie in the color from the lid.
I had a great time working on this box for my partner and I hope she will enjoy it. Until later..
Keep if crafty,
