Picking your brains
You must think I am strange. You know if I like something I just keep it in view to doing something with it at a later stage. I got this box as a gift well not the box but what was in it, but I fell in love with the box. I think it is beautiful so I kept it long after the biscuits were gone. Now I want to pick your brains on this one a bit cause I know many of you can turn an ugly looking box into a work of art with the snap of your fingers. I am no good with that sort of art so I have to ask you all. I will use this box for something doll related but firstly I would like to know what sort of edging to the box corners would you suggest. The reason is that the box had a sort of black tape to the 4 edges. Unfortunately that black tape was something like an insulation tape which started peeling off and left a horrible sticky rubbery glue residue which I am having trouble taking off. I took all the tape off it but want to replace it with something else. What would you suggest. Should I edge it with some sort of lace or should I use some paper perhaps and colour it. I am in 2 minds really also I don't think I will alter the whole box as I really like the images on it as is. Any suggestions?
