Today I made something different...
Cotton bud holders covered in toile,
draped with lace, a dash of trim, and
sprinkled with flowers.
I started with plain cotton bud containers.
These flip open from the side and are a little
trickier than the ones that have a top cover.
I took the measurement of the circumference
and cut the material precisely at the edge.
I then glued it into place,
and made a mark where the material will be cut out
so the lid can be closed.
From the back I left some extra material
I'm sorry this picture isn't very clear.
Here I zig-zaged some lace at the edge
of the material, following the pattern.
I started gluing in the middle to make it
fit exactly around the container.
I glued the material to the top, and later cut
out along the edges.
Oops! make sure if you have a pattern on the
material that it is upright...
Gather all the trims you have and find one or two
that looks best on your container.
Carefully I followed the edge of the container with the trim
making sure I didn't glue the cover shut...
Both sides with different trim.
I have this nice cotton lace that has
ribbon through it, so I glued that all around
the edge of the top.
Then I pulled the ribbon to tie it close.
I gathered some flowers and trims
to glue on top of the container.
This cutie will look nice on any dressing table.
This square box is much easier to make.
I used the same lace with ribbon as on
the top of previous container.
Then I glued it around the edge of the lid.
Then pulled the ribbon tight and glued into place.
Some trims to decorate the top with.
I glued a strip of material around the container
with the lid on because if it overlaps the lid
I then added some trim at the top
and bottom of the container,
and had fun decorating the top.
I hope you have a wonderful and creative week.
On Friday I will join in with
