First I gave the entire piece including all the little boxes a nice coat of black acrylic paint.
Etsy store, I painted them black and cut strips of the metal embossed tape to place around the spools.
Originally I was going to use these as little feet on the bottom of the box but later decided not to use them for that. I ended up gluing them to the top of the box instead for added decoration.
Next using Tim Holtz paper collection "Lost and Found" I cut out the letters and using Glossy Accents glued the letters to assorted sizes of Ideology Fragments and then glued to the top of the box.
So go get creative and have fun for all your embellishments !!!
