Sequin-trimmed gift box

The Designer Crafts Connection is working Decorative Trimmings this month - they have so many different kinds of trims, braids and ric-rac, it will make your head spin! I picked this wide purply sequin trim to embellish a black paper maché box...a little tacky glue and done. Letting the upper strip of trim overlap the lower strip a bit gives the box a cute rounded look.

To embellish the lid, I painted the edge with metallic purple and applied molding paste on top with a palette knife through a round stencil. After the paste was dry (only a couple little boo-boo spots), I rubbed it with metallic teal pigment powder and then glued on a chain of large rhinestones. A handmade treasure box like this would make a lovely gift - for a bridesmaid, Mother's Day, birthday...especially with a pretty pair of earrings or a new lipstick inside.

Use the DCC logo in the sidebar to hop between all our blogs to see what the other designers are doing with their trims!


  1. Very sparkly indeed. Has me guessing what could possibly be inside that would top the outside of the box.

    1. Thanks! I think the box is gift enough, right?
