Nailhead Lacquer Box

Sugar Paper is one of my favorite paperie stores.  They have the chicest and most stylish stationery around.  Years ago, I entered a giveaway on a blog (maybe La Dolce Vita?) and won a pink lacquer recipe box and other paper goodies from Sugar Paper.  

I don't usually write my recipes on index cards, but I LOVE the box and it's been sitting on my bookshelf forever.  I was thinking that maybe next year I'll use the box to create one of those one-a-day perpetual calendars.  

I recently embellished the box lid with square brushed gold nailheads that I found at Hobby Lobby.  They are meant for ironing on, but I used hot glue to affix them to the box.  A tiny dab works perfect and if you mess up, let the glue dry and peel up the nailhead.  I used my fingernail to scratch off the few bits of excess glue from the box. 

Of course, then I started looking around to see what else I could glue these babies onto! How about my Inslee calendar gifted to me by a very thoughtful woman.  Washi + nailhead = cuteness!

What would you use this nailhead trim on?  Love the idea of putting it on a cell phone case.  I know they sell these, but you could DIY if you can keep them in a straight line!

  1. Love that pink box! I would keep all of my daughter's hair ties in it! Love the cell phone case too! Wish they made those in Otterbox form! ;)

  2. Love the nail heads on the box.....I would maybe put nail heads on kitchen cabinets (uppers) maybe on the lower half just below the door, if you have plain wood molding there....that might make a killer cabinet.

  3. Love the pink box as well. The nail head trim adds just the right amount of bling!!

  4. I know you are very fashioned-minded. If I can afford only one good handbag for winter, would it be ok to carry a saddle/caramel colored one? I've found a RL one at TJ Maxx that I want. My only concern is carrying it when I wear black/gray. Thank you!

  5. Very cute box! I am going to have to get some of those nailheads pronto! Just what I need another reason to go to Hobby Lobby LOL

  6. I love the idea of sprucing up a calendar with these! So cute...adding it to my list of things to tackle soon!

  7. So cute! Love Sugar Paper. They really have the sweetest products!

  8. What a simple and beautiful touch! I love it.
