Cameo Box Top

The "Cameo" box top design was featured in the November December 1990 issue of Needlepoint Plus magazine, which is no longer published.  The photo above is the model from the magazine and the photo below is the cover of the magazine to aid you in finding it on eBay.  Both are courtesy of Ann in Baton Rouge.
