I hope everyone had a wonderful, fun, and safe 4th of July. It was a pretty miserable day weather wise in CT. Overcast in the morning and raining all afternoon/evening. No fireworks but we should be able to see some this weekend. I decided to use some of the down time to work on a few projects. The first is a box for my aunt. Her 50th birthday is coming up this weekend. My uncle said no gifts for her party unless we wanted to bring a gag gift. I personally am not into gag gifts, plus didn't have time to even look for one so I decided to create this box to hold her cards and other special mementos of the day. I used a combination of vintage wallpaper, vintage sheet music, and a sweet vintage birthday card and of course threw in some glitter!
The interior of the box. I'm running very low on my paper stash so I used quite a bit of different kinds but I think it adds to the character! I was having trouble getting the interior sides covered properly so I decided to trim them in rick rack and highlight the original purpose of the box.
Have a wonderful day dear blogging friends!
