I finally found a few minutes to finish off my embellished fabric box and it turned out rather beautiful I think.
I was originally going to use the ribbon fabric as the lining but it looked so good I decided to use it on the outside, and instead lined the box with a coordinating color fabric.
I attached the pieces using gold metallic thread. It’s altogether very sparkly.
You can see more photos of the fabric box in progress here and here.
