The box was in rough shape with the paper peeling so I applied two coats of mod podge which will seal and protect it.  The little feet are crystal drawer pulls.
I drilled two small holes in the top of the box and looped the ribbon through. I used rub-on lettering to add the words.
The boxes arrived in true beautiful Sue style with a ribbon, key and tag.

The boxes that held the player piano rolls are detailed and interesting so I wanted to perserve them and pretty them up a bit.  I added some crystal feet and ribbon.
