I have a confession to make, my fingernails are filthy.
My car is filthy too but that's because of the mud!
My fingernails and fingers are nasty dirty
from the painted door in the
but thats a post for later this week.
My daughter showed me this fantastic post on
making boxes! You can see it here.
They have a step by step tutorial which was very easy to
follow and her fingernails were all shiny red and clean!
The website is called Design Sponge.
The only thing we did different was cut 3/8 to 1/2 an inch from
two sides of one of the two pieces of paper to make a
smaller base box. It made for less of a struggle to
separate the top from the bottom.
With a few pieces of scrapbook paper, you can create some gorgeous boxes,
or make your own with painted paper like on the blog.
And the new obsession begins.....
My daughter went one step further and created larger, heavier boxes
with poster board that she hand painted from the dollar store.
This is her craft room
|Check out her fancy polka dot chairs she scored|
at a garage sale and did a complete 360 on them!
|Oh how I love her craft room.|
Back to dirty fingernail land....
I had a few trinkets lying around and thought they would make great little toppers for the boxes.
|These boxes were supposed to look like they travelled from Paris, but no matter|
how I tried to dress up the picture, they just looked dumb.
|Yep just plain dumb!|
|These are cool spiders though. And yes I will probably put spiders in them.|
|I definitely like the spiders more. They look like they travelled|
from" Spidermanland" and we all know Spiderman's hot!
