To make:

  1. Decorate the container first. First apply an undercoat and leave to dry overnight, then paint with a coat of white enamel. Leave to dry completely. Use a colour to paint the clasp, handle and the other attachments, as well as the stitching.
  2. Line the inside of the container with scrapbooking paper. Make A3-sized colour photocopies of scrapbook paper of your choice. Use these sheets to line the inside of the container by measuring the individual panels and cutting the paper to size for a neat fit.
  3. Paint the first panel you’ d like to cover with a coat of Modge Podge glue. Position the paper panel correctly. Use your fingertips to smooth out any bubbles or creases that may have formed, working outwards from the centre, then paint on another coat of glue.
  4. Repeat to line the remaining panels. Leave to dry, then seal with a final coat of Modge Podge glue.
  5. Decorate the inside of the lid by attaching trinkets and decorations with a length of cord. Also try cutting out pictures from a sheet of scrapbook paper and attached them to a length of pompom trim.
  6. Tie together the cards, envelopes and other items, then arrange them neatly in the container.
