Decorated Book Box!

Hello lovely bloggers!  I had so much fun with this little project, thank you Craft Barn :-D  I have altered a teensy Book Box, its only 9cm high...cute!!!!

There is a glow from the paints and sparkle from the stencilled medium!  Of course no Book Box would be complete without a book and this is sooooo cute ;-D  A Massive thank you goes to very clever girly *Dawn* who made it for me.  Sisters are very useful sometimes hahaha!!!!  Its only 4.5x6.5cm and has been decorated to match.

I call it 'My Little Book of Smiles' as its a lovely way to record all the things that really make you laugh in life!  A great present I hope for someone.  You can find the instructions *here* if you would like to make one of these though not the book itself sadly.

Many thanks for coming to see me, HUGS xxx

I'm sure Dawn is up for some bribery and corruption if I think of something worthwhile ;-) What a great idea - a book to record laugh times. A good antidote to winter blues xx
