Sew much Fun!

I am really going to have to learn how to take better pictures of the things I make, especially if I am going to be sharing them on a blog. I was recently in a swap and this is what I made. I decoupaged a paper mache box with a vintage sewing pattern and vintage sewing images. I glued buttons and other embellishments on the box and filled it with sewing supplies. It's too bad that sewing thread does not come on wooden spools anymore, I love those. I tried to find vintage looking things to fill the box. I made a needle book out of felt and added a blank card that I made. I had fun doing this and think my swap friend really liked it. The paper I used for the card was "Cosmo Cricket, Material Girl" and the stamp is from Stampin' Up "Puns from the Past" set. The label shapes on the card were cut with my Cricut and I don't remember the cartridges. I'm bad about that. Enjoy.
