On Friday, I showed you a little Hershey Kiss Box I made for my Sister In Law.
I also altered a larger box so I could add some treats in for her three sweet kids.
This box came from the second hand store and was very well made, just faded. So, a make over was due!
As far as decorations went for the top, I really lucked out.
I had a perfectly sized vintage doily, old metal piece from a repurposed drawer, rosette I made from a piece of Prima packaging, a huge glass bead for a knob, and those lovely hearts, gold ribbon, glassine envelope, and postcard came as a thank you gift from the Funkie Junkie Boutique.
When you receive a package from Linda, you really feel spoiled. Everything comes in these little glassine envelopes that have some pretty wrinkly ribbon that can also be reused.
My favorite item I got in my last package (which is very similar to the rose on the knob and also from Linda's shop) are these lovelies: Paris Glass Dome Cabochons. I cannot WAIT to use them!
The paper I wanted to use on the box is crazy awesome! It looks like snake skin and was some origami paper my Aunt sent. Cover it with gold modge podge and I think it looks like dragon skin! ;-)
She also sent me a bunch of Tim Holtz washi tape, which always works great for sealing the edges of a box!
Also LOVE these little feet.
They are vinyl bumpers I spotted at the hardware store and picked up for feet. Obviously I have a foot fetish! I love adding a little depth to anything!
I have a second similar box to show you tomorrow. The cold temperatures are keeping me in doors and hard at work on fun projects!
