Decorated Display Box

I found an old wooden display box in my craft stash that I couldn’t find a use for. Then I had the idea of decorating it up as a display case for a needlework enthusiast. All of the items were things I had in my stash and they can be swopped in and out to suit what you have and the end result you want to achieve

    1 I took two different sized wooden spools and wrapped embroidery thread around them. I then glued them into two of the display slots using Pinflair glue gel.

    Into the other two slots I added an old tape measure and some old buttons.

    Next I decorated the outside of the display box by adding lace and tape measure ribbon, together with some more buttons, flowers and wooden spools.
