The Jewellery Box

Hello Everyone  J Monday is already gone and the weather  outside is freezing brrrr,  so  here I am sitting in front  of my desk …

Today I am going to share with you and a simple gift box  which I altered into a jewellery box. Actually I never did something but wanted to give a try.  This reminded me of a jewellery box granny had in her bedroom if not mistaken made by the cloistered nuns. Whenever I entered this room I was fascinated by this jewellery box, especially those particular chenille flowers on the top.

The outside I covered it with paper and decorated the edges and sides with lace ribbon and braids.

The inside covered  it with satin  and underneath  with foam.

 On the inside of the lid attached a small mirror, framed with guipure braid and some embellishments.
