The Teal Paper Box You Never Knew You Needed In Your Life


On this blog, I encourage women from all walks of life to find their inner pin-up girl. And when you dress in pin-up style fashion headwear, is one of the most important parts of your look. But when traditional authentic vintage headwear so expensive, I see why a lot of women choose to leave it out of their look. So when I found s little shop called "Teal paper box" I just had to write an article about it. The headwear may not be authentic vintage but it closely resembles it for less than half the price. I asked the owner a few questions to find out more about her designs.

Here's how it went:
How did you Start Teal Paper Box?

Teal Paper Box started as a hobby it was just me wrapping up gifts for friends and family. It was my way to make gifts what I could give special.

Why did you Start The Teal Paper Box?
Interview with Leigh Gill owner of the brow paper box Vintage turbans and hair accessories,
The reason I started the shop is actually a little painful literally and figuratively. In short, I have an illness called Ehlers Danlos that causes chronic pain. I needed flexibility a standard job does have. So I fell back on skills from floral arrangements/gift boxes and applied them to hair accessories. I soon after opened an Etsy shop.

Why did you choose to make hair accessories?

The decision to make hair accessories is because I was having trouble finding items I liked in person. They would look great online but I get them home and it just wasn’t me. So I’m looking at my idea to start a business selling custom gift boxes, I’ve got all these flowers already I couldn’t help but think why not try hair accessories too. She may not know it but will now the current reigning Miss Viva Las Vegas Pinup Fran Robertson buying one of my first pieces was a big confidence boost to open shop.


What's your favorite design so-far?
I have two of the first design is the Dusty Rose Spiked Flower Crown, I actually almost pulled it from the shop page to keep for myself. In the end, I’m glad I didn’t as the photo was featured in an article by Refinery29. The second is a Spiked Rose Crown I made for the beautiful soul and disability advocate Ace.

What made you want to recreate different eras of head-wear?

Its not something that I intended to do they were the shapes I was drawn to, and wanted to recreate with modern convenience.

I see that you also make earrings are any other accessories you plan on making we can look forward to buying in the future?

I have experimented with resin in the past and I hope to master the skill at some point. You’ll have to check back to see how that works out.
