I just finished this keepsake box which could be used for one's special mementos; letters, pictures, treasures from a walk or it could be used as a container for laces or jewelry. Lots of possibilities.
I used chalk paint over a paper mache box, oh so easy even for this non-painter. I hesitantly applied fabric glue to adhere the wool and trim to the box, but it worked just fine. Stitches: Chain, fly, colonial knots, buttonhole, buttonhole bar, long and short buttonhole stitch,and running stitch.
Pattern and kit are available in my Etsy shop.
