After a fun but exhausting weekend, surprisingly I'm really not quite ready to settle down and get back to crafting -- I can't believe I said this but it's true! I'm pretty tired, and I'm having a difficult time trying to complete a project I started earlier over the weekend; I'm absolutely at a loss as to how I want to complete it, my mind doesn't want to cooperate with figuring it out, and I don't feel like trying to push it or stress over it right now. So, I whipped up another little project for you today; something simple but which was fun and relaxing:
This is your basic fry box but, of course, I've not seen anyone post it plain and/or filled with french fries!!! As crafters, dressing up and embellishing boxes is what we all have in mind to do with them-- it's one of the things that make boxes so much fun! Here I've accented it and tucked a small gift of a beaded bracelet in a velvet pouch inside it, added a card, and it's now a quick and easy gift box -- not just a fry box anymore! The only items needed were a few rhinestones, some ribbon, Peel-offs, a metal frame, and a few minutes. (The frame embellishment on the front photoed as gold but it's actually silver; I think the gold tone picked up from the reflection of my clothing.)
Boxes are wonderful, and can often be designed to become even more appreciated and/or attention-getting than the gift itself -- without a lot of materials and/or effort! I think what I love most about boxes the most is that you can always make them beautiful!
BTW, the hubby says to thank you for the birthday wishes, and I promise to post a picture of his new "toy" when it arrives in April!
Have a great-great day! I'll be back... so,
I'll be seeing you!
