Presley’s “Princess Box”DSCN0944

Every little girl needs a special Princess box to put her princess items into.  I made this using a round wooden hat box I had just sitting on a shelf.  Other items used were lace, beads, rhinestones, mirror, glitter paper and cardstock. I used the Princess Frame for this project.  I then added some rhinestones and adhesive pearls to the design. I attached the mirror material to the inside of the frame. Next, I cut a circle to cover the lid to my box. After my title was complete, I went on to decorating the bottom part of the box.   I used my Sookwang double adhesive tape to help place the lace in place.  Using my glue gun, I attached the strings of beads which I had precut into sections of 12 beads.  I glued these to the lace, then went back and added glue to the folds of my lace.  Repurposed box now completed! I had a Tiara for Presley and put it into her box and she was so thrilled when I gave it to her.  Over the years, I have collected vintage jewelry and have quite a lot of flashy jewelry she can add to her box.  Wouldn’t it be great if she passed this down to her own little Princess one day?
