Vintage Hat Boxes

I was so inspired by Jessica Enig's pretty little hat box project featured in the March 2011 issue of Romantic Homes Magazine, that I decided to make a few myself to give to some special friends I was seeing for lunch yesterday.
I used this lavender, aqua and green floral vintage wallpaper that I bought ages ago to cover the paper mache boxes.
The girls just loved them and now I have to find some time to make one for myself!
Signature w/rose

Oh. My. Goodness. These are too, too adorable!!! I haven't read my March issue yet...I'm using it to bribe myself into getting a project done...when I finish the project I can read it. :) But until then you've given me a great idea, thanks! Have a great weekend!

Your hat boxes are darling Jeanne!
I have a couple vintage ones, and had thought of reproducing them a couple of years ago...but of course never got around to it.

Oh, Jeanne,
Those are so cute. That is not a magazine I usually get so I would have missed them. I'll bet your friends just loved them. Think I need to pick up that copy and make some, too!! I got your darling card. Thank you! I am embarrassed to say that mine will go out tomorrow. I am usually not a late person :-(
Hugs,
Suz
