Hiding something ?

hello ladies,

do you sometimes also go a little overboard when you see something in your favorite craft store on sale or clearance?

Well I do… I don’t know how many of these little wooden boxes I picked up maybe a couple years ago at Michaels found in the $1 bin marked down to 50 cents.  Ever since I had to drag them around in my craft room pewh..

Back then I made a few boxes to give Christmas gifts away, this time I made one for Valentines. This time around I just painted the entire box with white Gesso and embossed with Frantage. So much easier and less mess than spritzing them with Tattered Angles Glitter spray. The black elastic band the box came with was replaced with a (NEW daaahhh of course ) white hair elastic I had in my vanity. The box turned out pretty cute and vintage. I did sent this box to Sweden including some yummy chocolates.
