I started with a purchased box and painted the sides with acrylic paint and covered the lid with burlap. A friend gave me these fabulous spools of lace and I chose the darker one as a background for the lid.
Then I made several roses from various textures including burlap, wired paper ribbon, gauze, and silk sari ribbon.
