Today I want to share a fun project with you.
But first I have to tell that my family always is laughing at me because of a strange habit. When I see a box with a nice shape I always want to save it instead of trowing it away. So you can imagine that my house is full of boxes in all sizes. Lately I saw this little box and I thought: I can make a lovely little present of it by using the shape. It is very easy to do. No need to buy expensive books or download patterns.
You only need a box, a scrap of paper and scissors and glue. Lay the shape down on a piece of paper as you see here below. Draw a line around it and cut it out. After that, glue it together as the original box was.

The final thing is, to add some embellishments as you like. I used the little bees of a stamp set by Hero Arts. It is called: "Be Happy". ( CL377) I also added a little tag, made with my cricut.

This is the inside of the little box. I can insert a little present of some candy.

Thanks for looking. Hope you liked it. Be sure to be back next week for another fun project

  3. It turned out so cute - love those bees! Thanks for sharing the process! And your picture of the "ladies" reminded me when I was just a girl in Girl Scouts, we were taking a hike out in the country. Our leader called us to get moving "Come on girls!" and a herd of cows all trotted down to the edge of the fence to see us!!
