Do I have a room filled with boxes? *winks*



You're a keeper box

Most of you know that I have a thing for boxes. :) And think that I have a whole room filled with boxes that I upcycle religiously. *LOL*

Haha...The truth is that I'm fussy about boxes. I only keep the really sturdy ones and I use them for storage until I upcycle them. No space for empty boxes lying around. :)


I particularly love these little tin boxes that I've had in my possession for many many years. Perfect for storing those little found items. I have about 5 of them and recently started "decorating" them because they were looking a little worn. This one was put together quickly with scraps from Echo Park paper and bits of lace and twine lying on my desk. Perfect for this week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World.


Supplies: Echo Park patterned papers, Jenni Bowlin pearls, Ranger crackle paint in rock candy, lace, twine, button, googly eye.

P/s: Come play along with my guest Chunyuan's rock-and-roll challenge!
