One photo just will NOT do my new favorite project justice! This entire project was inspired by the adorable image that Vintage Image Craft gave as a FREEBIE over on the Facebook page. I thought the image would be perfect for a Teacher's Appreciation gift so I paired it with the fun patterned paper and started out creating a pencil holder. As I was creating the rose from a scrap of pillow case that I had dyed in coffee & food coloring, My Antiques from the Sicilian Market caught my eye!!!! I was thrilled to have found such a clever way to incorporate them into such a useful project. BTW, this became a gift to myself!! It is the perfect pot to store my hand painted papers from Florence.

This is such a novel idea. Yet, what better way to hold the delicate papers you have in it. I really like your creativity. I love all the trinkets you attached. So cool!

I love this box. I am a teacher, and I wish someone would make me one! And I wish I had a market like you do to go and get these interesting pieces!
