Sorry It has been awhile. It has been a busy few weeks here as I have been preparing for this weekends Be Crafty workshop in Oklahoma !!! Earlier today I posted a quick picture on Instagram of a wood box package. Many of you asked what was inside, so I thought I would share with you quick and answer a few other questions regarding the packaging.
A few weeks ago while shopping at Micheals Craft store I stumbled across these wood boxes. On the shelf they are a blonde wood. I really wanted a dark wood look so with some stain I currently had in the garage I stained the box. After staining and wiping down, I let the box dry overnight.
Now that the box is dry, I started layering adding some lace along with some glitter ribbon (american crafts) and then wrapped with some left over fabric scraps.
Also at the craft store I stumbled across Project Life. Have you seen this yet?? Now I am not a scrapbooker. I just like pretty paper. I saw they had a special line of Dear Lizzy paper and of course had to get them. I was a little disappointed there was SOOO many of the same kind of designs, but have really enjoyed using the paper cards for packages and little notes. I usually leave one of the cards blank so the recipient can use it.
Inside: A Tea towel from Anthropologie, a roll of pink twin, and some washi tape. On the bottom there is a small paper notebook.
I don’t think I will ever get enough of gifting these wood boxes a new favorite.
