I used this old tea box. We go through A LOT of tea around here. Hey, this is the South, where babies drink sweet tea in their bottles! I am only halfway kidding. As you can see, we drink Lipton tea. It is The Best. If we can’t get Lipton, we will drink Tetley but nothing else.
I covered it in scrapbook paper. I will also be using this same scrapbook paper to line the drawers of the wild pink desk in her and her sister’s room. I inked the edges all around with just a plain black ink stamper from the dollar store. I also added some black trim around the top edge of the box.
I put her name in sticker letters on the top. I added a rosette made from some old clothes in a pink and black buffalo check. Next to that, I added two jewel hearts.
I thought I was all done but when I stepped back, I felt like it was missing something. Oh, yeah…GLITTER! This is for a little girl, right? Then, it calls for glitter. I added some Shimmer n Shine (from Elmers) to just the top. I think that was all it needed. When I was finally through and everything was dry, I sprayed it down with sealer.
I think it turned out really cute and hopefully, having a special place to keep her letters will make her feel a little more at home.
