Paris Inspiration Swap- what I made........

I had so much fun making these boxes..... I loved the Paris theme and covered each box with copies of a vintage french document...then added a beautiful postcard image and some vintage lace, ric-rac and a pretty flower.......


I filled each box with a tiny silver shell dish and added vintage buttons and lace, an eiffel tower charm, an old Parisian ticket, some pretty images, vintage keys and other goodies and then I made a pretty fabric cuff for each of them......

The cuffs I gave Natalea and Hope are the top 2, the bottom 2 are now in my etsy shoppe. I was lucky to meet 2 wonderful women/artists and it is just as much fun to create as it is to recieve each package! If you have a chance to do a swap and never have, jump in! It is great fun!
I will be adding new goodies to my etsy soon and will be having a 200th post giveaway very soon so keep checking back! Have a great start to your week, hopefully I will post again soon!
hugs! karen....
