Pinspired Crazy Quilt Box

Mitzi from Mitzi's Miscellany started up a new blog recently called Mitzi Made It.  It's such a fun place.  She takes vintage items and shows you how to use them to come up with some gorgeous projects. 

As soon as I saw her Crazy Quilt Journal I knew I had to pin it and use her idea as inspiration.

She used vintage wallpapers and buttons.  So pretty, right? Make sure to check out her blog for a step by step tutorial.

Here's my version:

Mod Podge Box, Crazy Quilt, Crazy Quilt Box, Crazy Quilt with paper, DIY Decorative Box, how to decorate a box, easy papercrafts

I used some super pretty coordinating paper from K & Company and some Mod Podge (of course) on a plain blah little box and then used my Silhouette to add a little flourish with the flower on some pretty (lingerie) elastic for a closure.


I'm not crazy about my faux stitching lines but they'll have to do.


Are you wondering what's inside the box????  I hope so because it is something soooooo pretty!  I can't wait to show you, but you'll have to come back next Wednesday to find out.  I'm such a tease, I know~

(Don't forget the the new Motivated Monthly linky party started up yesterday.  If you've reused or recycled something in an interesting way, make sure to link up throughout the month of May!)
