I see them in flea markets, I picked this one up for $1. It's pretty as is, but, you know I had to dress it up with paper!
I printed off some patterned paper from the Creating with Vintage Patterns CD on copy paper and coverd the box, I adhered the paper with Mod Podge. I stamped the banner from the Artsy Banner stamp set with Ranger Distress Old Paper ink, cut it out and adhered it all around the top edge of the box. I painted on a coat of Mod Podge over the paper to protect it. I glued on some vintage white buttons on the banner flags on the front. I adhered some tiny pom-pom trim to the top edge all the way around.
I pulled out my Alterations rosette and mini rosette dies and cut some rosettes for the top. Are you getting tired of my rosettes yet? It seems like I use them on everything I make, I LOVE those dies!! I cut the rosettes with paper from the Crafty Secrets Pastel Paper Pad and some My Minds Eye 12x12 paper strips. I cut the different sizes and layered them and glued buttons on top. I threaded the buttons with tiny strips of cardstock. I stuck 2 green stick pins in one of the rosettes.
That's my project, now check out the other girls projects and the Heartwarming Vintage Blog to see some eye candy!
