For Amy, I covered a box with flocked paper...black damask for the body and black and silver stripes for the lid. I embellished a butterfly mask to decorate the top.
I created a couple of tags in the ball theme and wrapped fancy trims around them to use in future projects. A vintage box discovered in Minnesota did hold a dark secret...a vintage heart-shaped perfume bottle with a keyhole design. I filled it with black glitter and tied a silver ribbon and a little black key just under the cap. A rhinestone shoe pin from Victorian Trading Company was added as a keepsake of that imaginary night of dancing and intrigue.
The swap was a lot of fun and I'd like to thank Stacey for proposing it and Amy for being such a generous and creative partner.
