Decorated Scolloped Edge Box

I had so much fun decorating this box.
Some of my favorite things are on it~
birds, flowers, music, sweet locket
along with the word Princess.

Oh and by the way, the little locket actually opens!

The box is 6" x 6" x 2" and made of light brown cardboard.
I think the scolloped edges are perfect.
I added pink velvet ribbon along
the edge for added detail.

The scalloped box is very cute, Dogwood. I love that vintage-looking image of the swallows. The locket is a great idea! Does it have a picture inside?

I bought my canvas for our project yesterday. Now to figure out what to do ...

Hope you're having a wonderful Sunday! I've been curled up in bed all morning, reading, writing and sipping tea. Oh yes, and nibbling on Halloween candy. Starburst and tea, yum.

PS. Did I tell you I finally got wireless Internet access in my apartment?

You did a wonderful job on your scalloped edge box... it's so pretty and peaceful looking... I have a few cigar boxes set aside that I keep thinking I'll get around to altering one day... hopefully soon!
Have a beautiful day...

That is the cutest doggone little box I have ever seen! Great job! The locket is a perfect addition. It would make a great gift, you could put a picture of the recipient of the gift or a grandchild... perfect! Have a blessed evening!!!!!
