box and lace bundle inside



I love boxes almost as much as I love books and embroidery.
I have lots of hatboxes filled with just stuff.

Here is a box to hold projects.
I put a bundle of lace inside because I hate it when one takes the lid off a box and nothing is there.
I always put things in them so the viewer is not disappointed.

Must be my childhood memories coming to the surface.
Looking in my Nanna's old boxes and finding all kinds of memories, photos, hankies and brooches.

This is so beautiful.

and great idea to have something in boxes. I have a small gift shop, and I sell a variety of old boxes, tin, cardboard, wood. I'll make sure to put some little treasures i them now.

thanks

I agree - empty boxes just aren't fun!!
Gorgeous detail Lilla - oh so luxurious with the feel of days gone by.

I LOVE your treasure boxes (I now own two)! ;)

I made a banner, Lilla! Not a Christmas one (yet)... but my first banner nonetheless. I posted about it and added a link to your tutorial!
