Brides Lucky Sixpence

I made this to give the Lucky Sixpence to my best friend on her wedding day

I used a small plain white box. I printed the well known rhyme and cut it into a narrow strip to fit around the box. I also added some pink satin ribbon. I attached the lace and pearl trim around the lid. 

I attached the final part of the rhyme to the lid of the box. I die cut it with a Xcut scalloped circle die and layered it onto a pink scalloped circle that I cut with the next size die in the nesting set.

I printed a personalised sentiment and attached it to the inside of the lid of the box.

I covered a piece of cotton wool with tulle to attach to the inside of the box with a hot glue gun and then added the peg embellishment. I covered the sixpence with tulle to enable me to "peg" it into the box.
