Sweet little spring boxes

VERY simple project!  I just picked out some pretty spring colored scrapbook embellishments and put one or two of them on the top of each of these little mullberry paper covered boxes with sheer ribbon handles.  (the boxes came with the paper covering and ribbon handle)

These embellishments are from “K & Co.”.  I sooooooooooooooooo wish I could stock their stuff in the store!  Just don’t have the room for the minimum order quantities some of these bigger suppliers require.  I just buy the ones I use at the craft store.  Michael’s stores usually has this brand.  And sometimes I see them at Target.

I only put one simple decoration on the lid of the box, (since I was doing so many of them to sell in the store, and wanted to keep the price down) but these would be cute to add ric rac or beaded trim to, to dress them up more.  And the lids could be made into a more elaborate altered art collage.

Embellished gift boxes.

Made these embellished gift boxes last week.  The boxes were already covered with the colored paper when I bought them, so I just added some ’embellishments’ to them.  For some of the boxes I used the ‘Hot Off The Press’ card making kits, as I have done for jar candle labels in the past.  Fun, fast and easy.  Great to fill with holiday treats to give as a gift.
