A new button box creation and a fun swap~~~

It's a wallpapered button box! I love making these little boxes so much....just take a simple papier mache box in whatever shape you like and put some lovely vintage wallpaper on it...it's transformed!

This photo shows the one I just made and one I made a few years ago. I put a small hole in the lid to house my string which I seem to use every day. You can also put some ribbons or seam binding in it.

I spotted this shabby wallpapered box in a lovely etsy shop. I could never in a million years have enough of these boxes! They are the perfect storage in my studio.

This shop owner was a dream to work with and we actually ended up swapping items to each other and it was so much fun.

She's happy, and I'm happy.
Off to create some more boxes...hope you're staying busy!

Very cute and love the string holder idea! I saw a box with drawers loke this on etsy the other day and immediately thought of you Gail. I know how much you love the vintage floral wallpapers.

Your little button boxes are a treasure - so beautiful as is your antique storage wallpapered box. I love those as well.
