I found this trunk at an estate sale. It had tons of age and wear and tear and I loved it.
The latch (or lock?) was missing and left a hole.
I printed this tag from The Graphics Fairy , tore and aged the edges, and adhered with modpodge over the hole.
The latches to close the trunk were also missing. I cut some strips of old burlap and threaded them through the top part of the latch. For the bottom, I drilled a small hole to attach the burlap.
The bows are cute and functional.
And there you go. A couple of quick embellishments and the trunk has a new old look.
