Note to self: never again!

I have a new-found respect for those of you who stitch the same design multiple times.  I finished up my four little boxes last week, and can I just say....NEVER doing that again!

Here they are, from the top:

The second shot shows the paper I attached to the inside with Modge Podge and then covered with a clear varnish.
And here are the insides.  The fabrics weren't all exact matches, but they were as close as I could get!  And what doesn't show in the any of the pictures very well is the felt I put on the bottom of each box.  Again, coordinating with the cording/bird/inside fabric.
I think my husband's grandmother would be pleased...the bird beads were from her jewelry stash!  I've recycled them into more than a few projects over the years.  The little boxes are for my stitchy friends, and will be delivered this weekend.

Beautiful finishes. It's the reason I will never really sell anything because I can't stomach the thought of repeating a project again and again.
