I added some thread lace on the lids, This is done on water soluable stabilizer using a hoop with the feed dogs down on the machine. Then you just sew in circles until you reach the desired size.
Added to that as I sewed is bits of metallic threads and leather fragments. Some beads bring a nice brightness to the piece, and some tassels are a nice touch I think.
One is black and the other is brown/gold. I show the inside of the lids where I appliqued a fussy cut piece from the fabric.
