Blue Flowered Box

Lots of crafters on YouTube had been talking about the balsa wood boxes in the $1 bin at Michael’s and doing videos of the beautiful things they made of these little boxes.  So, here is one of my creations made with my all-time favorite paper.  I grab a couple of sheets whenever I see it on sale.  Actually, it is the first paper I have ever really loved so much that I feel concerned if I don’t have a couple of sheets in my stash at all times!  I had beautiful flowers that I had ordered on-line from Wild Orchid Crafts (the pink carnations) and they always send a little “thank you” package.  Six of those large, dark blue roses were gifts from WOC!  How perfect!  Another view will show you what I mean.

The box has a jeweled pin, some beautiful lace and a couple of pretty bows to finish the top. The inside and bottom of the box are finished as well.  The little feet are painted with a white pearl paint and have pink pearls around the top edge. The bottom is a matching paper in this series that has little white dots all over it.

I appreciate your time and attention to my little offerings and I love to hear from you!

About Charlotte Zweigoron

Married, retired, never been so busy..! One of my most prized possessions is my very own craft room! And, actually, all the rest of our home is built around that craft room. Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. I have been living in Georgia for over thirty-five years after a four year stint in Chicago. Crafting, reading and playing Mah Jongg with our circle of friends are my favorite activities right after spending time with my four grandchildren and four great-grandsons. Two of my three grown daughters and one of my two grandgirls live right across the yard from my husband and I. The youngest daughter, her husband, and our grandpups live in our same town. I have been teaching a paper crafting class for over three years and the ladies in the group have become a second family. We are well and truly blessed with people and critters to love..!
