This week I’ve been working on some more decoupage boxes and altered bottles in hopes of opening up a little shop on Etsy. And I have to confess, I’ve been procrastinating because I’m a little insecure about it. What if no one buys my stuff? What if I don’t price it right? “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Isn’t that how the saying goes?
I started with plain, paper mache boxes from Hobby Lobby and added script paper.
I had a sheet of floral pictures that I found at the Kane County Flea Market.
The floral circles were added to the tops of the boxes.
The edges of the lids are trimmed with crocheted lace.
Each box wears a different script pattern, this one is really more of a French ephemera paper.
The bottom of the interiors were lined, as well.
I have a few flea market cigar boxes to decorate, which are wooden, not paper mache.
My postal scale should arrive tomorrow so I can figure out shipping costs.
Then all I need to do is upload the photos and info to Etsy.
Note: Any words of Etsy wisdom are greatly appreciated!
