Molly's Hat Box

Today is Molly's birthday. Molly is the firecracker that my daughter works with. Together with another girl, they are also house-mates. She is a darling girl and loves all things pretty and girly! So, I made a frilly hat box for her to keep her treasures in.

I first printed out some old French documents, letters, and pictures from Graphics Fairy. Next I tea-dyed them. In this picture you can see them drying in my bathroom and dripping tea all over the bath tub.

 I covered the box with the box with theses papers and "decoupaged" them all smooth and shiny. I finished the inside with pretty ribbon, and more labels.

Next I made some Coffee Filter Roses from a great tutorial from The White Bench.
They were glued on top with pearls, lace and tea-dyed velvet ribbon.

And finally the finished box:

Happy Birthday Molly!

Hello Pricilla~ I think gifts made by hand are surely 'works of heart'! I know Molly will love using the feminine box, and think of you when she does. Your cofee filter flowers are fab!

What a gorgeous gift-you are so clever! I bet Molly loved it!

If you ever feel like linking up to another party I host a Say G'day Saturday party every weekend and I would be so thrilled if you could join in!

Best wishes,

I love the way the box turned out. I have a box thats "A work in progress" made up of our wedding cards. I decided that I didn't like it and it is still waiting for me to do something with it. I do like yours though.

Dear Priscilla
Happy birthday, Molly! The box is very nice!
Thank you also for the kind comment on my blog. Sorry, I don't know the name about the cookie which you had in Gruyere.
I wish you a happy week with a lot of sun. Hugs Yvonne
