Aloha all, how is your day going?  Mine is going pretty well, I'm having fun trying another "NEW" project.  In the beginning of Dec. our church is having a chili, pie and craft sale.  I volunteered to do some goodies to sell.  I decided I needed to make a variety of things, and so, this project!  I bought some of the small paper mache' boxes at Micheal's and covered them in different papers, then added some flowers, rhinestone flourishes and ribbon.  I didn't have a pattern, but just traced the shapes and cut them out.  It was quite easy really and I was surprised at how quickly they went together.  I also realized the endless possibilities for decorating them!  Since I did the vintage card and enjoyed it so much I think I will try one in a vintage style next!

Entered in the following challenges:


  1. Aloha Joanne! Oh these boxes are so pretty, they are just the sort of thing I'd be attracted to at a craft sale so I'm sure they'll be popular. Nice to try new things, you are obviously on a roll with new techniques and crafting projects. have fun! CoB
