SWAN ALTERED BOXES, TO STORE SOME OF MY GOODIES IN.

This was a super fun altered project to make. These are regular Kraft paper boxes that I of course had to cover using, my all time favorite paper collection, Websters Pages . I them trimmed the top of each box with a soft pink velvet ribbon, I LOVE velvet ribbons.
The little swan I picked up for just a few pennies. The key is from my collection of vintage goodies. I will soon have a video up on it.

  3. Beautiful Marlene! I looks like something from a very expensive boutique. The swan & glitzy key on top are gorgeous!
