This is quite pretty. I have only done this once. I don't find a lot of uses for embroidering on wood, but it was fun to try.

You need to build up a big enough piece of balsa on tear away stabiliser to cover your box, then embroider.

Very nice...what did you use to cut the balsa wood?

I stuck it to the lid first, weighted it overnight and then placed it upside down on a cutting mat and cut round with a craft knife. A final light sand along the edges gives the chamfer.
