My swap partner said her favorite colors were red, black, and white. She also said that she was planning to work on an album for her newphew. I used these as my main search criteria for the goodies I added to by box.
I bought two kinds of boxes from Dollar Tree and decided to use the larger one. The boxes can be found in the beauty and automotive sections of the store.
I filled the box with items from my stash, JoAnn, Tuesday Morning, and Michael's. I included a bottle of Tim Holtz distress ink in red which allowed me to add wooden embellishments that my partner could alter. I added metal clips in various shapes, assorted trims, beads, metal and paper flowers, as well as assorted tags.
My box had to include two handmade items. I created a mix of sequins specifically for my swap partner and put it in a Queen & Co bottle. I used my fuse tool to create two shaker tags filled with sequins and tied to large tassles.
I decorated the outside edge of the box lid with red rose lace. I decorated the lower edge with black lace. Both laces were from my stash. I used the We R Memories Keeper Nesting Daisy Dies to create a flower for the lid. I added a Teresa Collins large black rhinstone to the center and placed it on a white doily.
