I completely forgot to show you this little miscellany box. I meant to do it last month but somehow, I got distracted. Funny how that happens.
It’s a simple little paper mache box from Michael’s. I painted the inside with Plaid’s Folk Art Paint and used Mod Podge to apply Anna Maria’s Loulouthi fabrics to the sides.
But it’s the top with its embroidered blossom that really makes me smile. I love that little flower. I drew the outline on an even weave white fabric and started filling in with Anna’s Anchor embroidery threads. The sheen of these threads makes the final product glow.
These boxes are very inexpensive and make great gifts. You wouldn’t have to go to the lengths I did. You could paint the whole thing. Or decoupage with paper. It might not be a bad idea to have a few of these on hand for the holidays. Christmas is coming, believe it or not.
