Vintage Little Girl’s Box

First of all I want to thank our dear friends and followers for giving us such a warm welcome back, thank you for all your emails, it is really nice of you and I am very happy to be back.  Thank you so much, we appreciate it!

Before I went on vacations I mentioned I had decorated a box for my sister in law and today I want to show you the pictures of that project.  It is a small jewelry box and I chose an image of two little girls for the lid that reminded me of her and her little beautiful daughter. Here it is:


The box is made of wood and I chose two colors to paint it: Mustard & Pink.  This decoupage project was done following our standard procedure that you can find Here.




I added a flower with a stencil on the front and the sides.


For more decorative accents, I used different vintage stamps around the box: a postage stamp, industrial company address, a carte postale, a butterfly & a bird.

 


The interior and the back of the box are simple, just plain colors as I did not want to make it too heavy. 



The little girl’s image is from a Vintage Advertisements book of Dover Publications.



It was a fun decoupage project for me and I think is very tender.  To see the standard step by step for this decoupage project, please click Here.
