I purchased the 8x8 and the 12x12 boxes and used the larger for my grandson's treasure box. Wasn't sure what I was going to use the smaller one for until I was going through my closet and came upon some of my grandmother's gloves,compacts and other personal items. Eureka! A vintage treasure box for me. The timing was perfect since I would have it for Mother's Day as a gift to me, from me. Yeah, I give myself gifts!
This is the finished product with some of the items from Grandma. Her long black gloves with black seed pearls, perfumed powder compacts, gold rouge compact with white seed pearls, emerald and gold engagement ring in a tiny box, and white gloves with embroidered / crocheted accents. The harmonica is actually my grandfathers, as is the lighter, even though he wasn't a smoker, unless you count the occasional cigar. My only problem with this project ? I should have made it bigger ! Pretty sure I'm getting the 12x12 boxes again, because this one was SO much fun and I think I need a bigger box !! Remember, if you can't find something in the store, contact Suzanne for help. You never know until you ask !!
That's it for this post fellow Flocklings. Hope you all have a great weekend, and a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all of our moms out there in Scrappyland !
