TPBP - DT Project - Banner on a Spool and Gift Box

Hello Everyone,

I have just completed another design team project for The Piece By Piece which can be found at  I made a Mini Happy Birthday Banner that rolls up on a vintage spool.  This would be perfect for anyone's birthday or any occasion.  The recipient could hang up their banner for the occasion and then when finished with it, roll it back on the spool, and tuck it into the pretty little box to await the next occasion.  I also made a small birthday card to go with the banner.  The box that the spool fits in was just a box I think I had purchased from Michaels some time ago.  It had a dark pattern but I painted it with a creamy pink paint and then covered the edges with paper from the Divinie Collection from Prima.  I also added lace and trim to the box.

I used laces and trims from The Piece By Piece as well as the papers from the Prima Lyric and Divine collections that I had purchased from the store some time ago.   The items used are as follows:
Cream Venice Lace -
Fancy Shear Lace -
Narrow Celery Silk Ribbon -
Antique Pink Scallop Trim -
Cream Galon Lace:
Pink Lace Trim - Out of Stock
Cream Fan Lace - Out of Stock

I covered the paper on the card and the box with some of the lace trim.  I just love the look.  You can still see the pattern of the paper but it has the lace covering - very similar to the clothing we are seeing in the stores these day.  Designers are covering all kinds of print fabrics with lace.  It is beautiful.
