Just to warn you: This will be a long post!
For Christmas for my cousins, I decided to decorate two boxes. These are no ordinary boxes! They are actually boxes that held wooden/metal dolls w/ clothes that attached magnetically. Like paper dolls, but w/ magnets. My older daughter received a set for her birthday, or last Christmas, and we have been moving the box upstairs, downstairs, everywhere! And one day I was looking at it, and it dawned on me that it looked like those boxes that are oh so famous that people are redecorating each little cubby! Like THIS for example! My youngest daughter got a set for Christmas this year, and I used hers for the other one!
They were originally pink, and I spray painted them white, and then black. Then I sanded down the edges a bit to give it that worn look.
Here's the first one I made:
Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Bells. I used red seam binding that my sweet friend Karolyn sent to me!
My Favorite Things and Nestabilities. I adhered them to fishing line so it is supposed to look like falling snow. And the flocking at the bottom is supposed to be already fallen snow.
And here's the second box I made.
Kitchen Sink Stamps Holly & Mistletoe.
Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Poinsetta.
Kitchen Sink Stamps Build A Garland. The lights are from a mini Christmas SU! set. I colored them w/ Copics. I made the two packages myself, and used seam binding ribbon for bows. I used wire to connect all the lights together. Does it look real?
Kitchen Sink Stamps Winter Cardinal and the bows are from Kitchen Sink Stamps Build A Garland.
All the paper I used: Jovial by Basic Grey; Christmas by Me & My Big Ideas; & Evergreen by K. & Co. (old).
*Each link for Kitchen Sink Stamps goes directly to the set mentioned. The My Favorite Things are just to the main site. There's a glitch right now w/ the site.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
