I’ve been saving the best of these decorated boxes for last. This heart shaped box is easily my favorite, and it took me a while to think of something that I wanted to do for the inside of it.
The first thing I thought to do was to crochet a piece of handmade lace and use it as a tie – like the tie on a ring bearer’s pillow. I tried it, but it turned out kind of awkward. I think I made the lace too long and the white lace with white flowers was a little too boring visually. In the end I decided to glue a medium sized white chrysanthemum in the middle and add some stamens off to the side. It was still all white, and I knew it needed some color, so I made a silver and aqua blue dragonfly to perch on the flower.
