This week's quick decorated box (a short tutorial)

This was one of those boxes that took longer to photograph than the time taken to actually decorate it. *LOL*

I started with this sturdy corporate gift box (yes, the box got me more excited than the thermal flask inside*winks*). I measured and cut some ornate and foiled patterned paper.

Then I ran the patterned paper through my trusty Xyron Creative Station for an even layer of adhesive and glued the pieces to the box.

Now at this point the box already looked 100 times better than its plain beginnings but of course, I had to "bling" it up a little, right?

I went in with some pearl trim for the top of the box...

And some purple tassel trim for the edges of the box which I decided not to cover with patterned paper...for a pop of colour contrast.

What do you think?

Happy weekend friends!

Beautiful! And funny that it took longer to photograph than to make. That happens to me all the time. I wish I could just scan everything!
