A whole box of roses

Just before my birthday, Tiger was selling cheap balsa wood expanding craft boxes for £6. My mum took a hint, so it duly arrived on a tabletop in front of me on my birthday, and I spent the next several weeks spreading paper, glue and spray paint around the house.

Here’s the result of my first decoupage:

I used Rifle Paper Co wrapping paper which I bought at Selfridges. It took forever to cut out, and actually, I think cheap wrapping paper might work better with decoupage as this was a bit thick. But it is so pretty…

This little box now holds all my zippers, sewing machine feet, thimble and machine needles. Pretty and practical!
