Sequin-trimmed gift box

sequin treasure box lisa fulmer

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.

Tiffany Windsor, her sister Heidi and her grand niece Savannah have put together an amazing array of gorgeous ideas for creating scarves.

Sewing, painting, braiding, beading, stamping, crocheting, doodling and dying - there's something here for everyone. Some scarves you make from scratch and some are ready-made scarves that you customize with all kinds of fun techniques.

The projects are split into seasons, and each one has loads of photos and tips to help you get the best results, plus there's a section that shows you lots of fashionable ways to knot, twist, wrap and wear long, narrow scarves.
