Sequin box - Paper Issues

What is more shiny that sequins ? When browsing Pinterest a while ago I saw someone decorating a box with sequins and I thought that would be great for Christmas, so here is my Shiny thing for our Shiny & New Issue.

Here is how I did it

Start with a box - wrapped or not.  Find a lot of sequins  and start threading them onto your embroidery thread - preferably with a needle - that will save you a lot of time.

Don't cut the thread until you are completely finished, then the sequins will not fall off.  When you are happy with the amount of sequins you want to use - divide them in three parts on the thread and then start wrapping the thread around the box. You only have to make sure the sequins are on one side so you just move them to where you want to.

When you have wrapped all your threads around the box just tie a knot on the back.

We will be giving away a $20 GC to the Paper Issues store for one lucky linker.

That will buy you some pretty awesome stuff! Here to link up
