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!
