Round Paper Mache Box

Front View
This is a paper mache box that I made for a friend...I got out the acrylics and painted it in blue and white stripes...On the top of the cover I added a vintage crocheted doily and some pretty, paper flowers with pearls in matching colors...My friend is a professional seamstress and artist so for a sewing look I draped tape measure ribbon around the front of the box and added lots of vintage buttons...I also painted the top of a wooden spool with blue flowers and wrapped a pretty strip of lace around it for her to use...I placed the spool inside the box as part of the gift...She loved it and has it displayed in her sewing room and I'm so happy about that...

Well, we're still digging out from the blizzard here in Massachusetts...Maybe more snow on the way, too...That's winter in New England..I hope everyone is safe, warm and cozy...Thank you for visiting my blog today....Kathy
