Hello craftsfters!
This is my first real go at doing something out of my comfort zone - and is (i think) my first topic so forgive any bumps in this!

This is a very old vanity case - recently turned my room from lilac little girl room to white and vintage... so bought an antique bed, painted and waxed it.... anyway - it was my birthday last week and a lovely friend got me some cath Kidston goodies. I loved the paper and couldn't think of what to do with it... LIGHTBULB ha ha

The photos are taken on my phone - sorry for the poor quality Sad

This is the case before:

This is the paper:

Action shot of ironing the creases out:

Measuring and cutting and good old prit stick:

This is the final result

It's not perfect - but i'm sitting in the happy glow of self pride that i'm sure that you all know well Smiley
I plan to coat in pva to secure it when my mum comes home and can tell me where she's hidden it.
I only used half the paper in the end (after worrying that i wouldn't have enough :L ) - any ideas with what to do with the rest?

Much love - hope this works Smiley
