Thrift Store Box

Plain box with ceramic fronts as originally found.
A ribbon flower with vintage button centers.

Challenging myself to use up things I already have.  Bought the box for $1 at the thrift store and then finished it with things from my stash.  I wanted to do some fancy papers as well but didn't have anything fun in black and white so I resisted the urge to make a trip to the craft store.  The ribbon bits for the flowers came off of PJs I got the kids at Christmas.  Sometimes I save the most ridiculous things!

Take care,
