Spring Petite Inspiration Swap Boxes

Here are the boxes that I sent my swap partners.  This was a fun swap, hosted by Heather.  Thanks, Heather, for another great swap!

I started these boxes by spray painting them a creamy ivory color.  Then I covered them in a new favorite paper that looks like a sweet vintage wallpaper.  I adhered a doily to the top of each, then attached velvet strawberries and velvet leaves.  I added lace on the edges of box and tied a bow on the bouquet of strawberries.  The final touch was a small blue brad on the end of the box.

Then I filled up the box with flowers, leaves, glittered clothespins, a bag of vintage lace, a tag of pink and blue trims, a Victorian calling card, and a piece of special organza trim.

I  hope that my swap partners love their boxes!
