Audrey Hepburn Trinket Box

I really love fast and easy projects that have an appeal. Taking something plain and dull and turning it to something beautiful.

I have always like the quote by Audrey Hepburn that says,

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."

That is beautiful in itself!

I found some craft boxes at the dollar store. They were plain, unpainted, hinged wood boxes. I wish I would have remembered to take a picture before it was painted.

I took turquoise and black paint and painted the box in a two tone color.

With the top black and bottom turquoise I felt it was kinda plain. I remembered I had made those flowers the other day.

I glued a white flower to the top and added some rhinestones around the lid.
Then I added a part of the quote to go around the box. 

"...for beautiful lips speak only words of kindness..."

It makes such a nice gift box or a place to store something pretty!
