I used one of the plain recipe boxes gave it a couple of coats of white acrylic paint to stop the dark colour of the box showing through the papers I was going to use. I painted the inside of the box using pearlised acrylic paint that had been mixed with iridescent glitter to add some sparkle.
The box was then covered with pretty vintage style paper from hunky dory I used stripes for the main body of the box and spots for the lid. I has some pretty vintage peel off borders in my stash that I have had so long I can't remember where I bought them and I used these on the corners of the body of the box and around the top of the lid. I gave the whole thing a couple of coats of matt decoupage glaze and then left it for a couple of days to dry out completely.
The pretty vintage style lace was stuck around the body of the box using a hot glue gun. I wanted to keep the vintage feel so when I only had white pom-pom trim in my stash I dyed it using a weak solution of Ranger Distress ink in bundled sage. and then fastened this over the lace using hot glue again.
