Have you seen these little paper mache boxes at the craft stores? I think they are like 50 cents or so. Since my brain is not normal.....at all.......I am constantly saving and buying anything and everything that I might be able to alter someday. (Do I need to remind you of the Pringles lid from yesterday?) So I bought lots of these little boxes. (You may notice that only one box has actually been altered here.....) Anyway, I cut up pieces of my scraps from Noel Mignon's Dear Santa kit (sold out) and Modge Podged them to the lid. I outlined the perimeter in Stickles and sprinkled it with mica flakes. The snowflake was cut using Spellbinders and then airbrushed while the brass template was still in place. I added a button, some jingle bells, and a little tag from My Mind's Eye.
I am actually going to give this box to one of the teachers I work with. (GASP! I am actually giving something I made away!!!) I purchased a pair of earrings for her and thought this would be a cute way to give them to her.
I haven't heard yet from ELLE for her blog candy. ($320.00 gift certificate for Crafty Secrets) IF anyone knows her and can contact her, I'd appreciate it! She didn't leave an e-mail address. If I don' t hear from her by Thursday night, I will randomly pick another number.
