"Chest of drawers" filled with trinkets giveaway! :)



Chest of drawers

My fave type of crafting is altered art. I love taking a mundane object and transforming it into something else. Something unexpected but practical. :)


Most of you know how much I love boxes [I must have shown dozens of altered boxes by now. *LOL*] so I was delighted when I rummaged through my "keep-it-for-a-rainy-day" stash and found these....little packaging boxes made out of corrugated cardboard. Just perfect for LESSology Challenge #13: Chest of drawers.


Just added an ice-cream stick and a mirrored embellishment on each box and tied them together with some twine. Doesn't it look like a cute chest of drawers? Haha...I think so and I'm sticking to it. Anyway, I've filled them with my fave little trinkets and I'm sending it out to one of you. :) Just my way of saying thanks for being a supporter of my blog. You want in? Leave me a comment on this post and I'll pick a winner in a week. :)

P/s: Come play along with my guest Michelle's neon challenge...it ends on Friday!

Well isn't this adorable! I love the texture of the corrugated cardboard. The craft sticks and mirrored embellishments make the most perfect pulls for this tiny chest of drawers! This will look fabulous on a craft table filled with whoosie-what's-its and what-nots :)
