I used ribbon to wrap the lid and line the inside. But because the colors were showing through the ribbon, I covered the letters with write out. I think next time I will take a trip to the store and get some spray paint.
I finished the top with rolled ribbon flowers, to decorate. I used hot clue for everything.
To keep the ribbon from coming apart and to disguise the rough edges I held it over a candle and let the heat shrink it all away.
This was an easy, quick and inexpensive project. If you try it, or have any other ideas fell free to post a comment and pics. I would love to see it.
