I wanted to share a few pretty Christmas images with you ~
I've probably posted them before
but you may need to create a few tags for your gifts
and these could come in handy...
Also I finished my treasure/keepsake box!
I thought it would be neat to show you the before photo of the box too :)
It was a basic wooden box that I found at Hob Lob and it was
really pretty to begin with but I had a vision of what I wanted it to be.
I painted the box with vintage white craft paint, added the beautiful label
(that I just can't seem to stop using on projects),
then I embellished it with fragments of lace and seam binding....
adding a pretty pearl bauble to the bow.
This was the inside before...
it was lined with some kind of strange fabric that I ripped out.
Then I painted the inside with the same
Folk Art "vintage white" craft paint to brighten it up.
Next I made a pattern of the inside bottom and lid
and cut fabric to fit both...
And before gluing the fabric in,
I made a pocket to go in the lid from beautiful wedding lace!
Now the box is ready to store beautiful treasures and keepsakes!!
Thank you so much for buying it Susan...I hope you love it!
I'm working on a few egg soap orders and my last project this week,
an altered bottle that's almost finished.
I've been a little under the weather with some kind of scratchy, sore throat congestion that
has really tried to get me down...isn't it amazing how we take our good health
for granted? I hope you are doing well and staying healthy!!
Wishing you a wonderful Friday precious friends,
hugs and love,
