Gifts For Art Friends

I don't normally show the projects that I'm sending in to Stampington.  I realized that that attibuted to
what seemed like less of a crafty year for me in 2011.

I decided to show a few projects here and there and I'm starting with this gift for an art friend.
I found this old thread box at the flea market for $1 and even though
it was pretty rickety I thought it could
be used once anyway.
You can see that I had to reinforce a few areas with some washi tape.  I hardly notice that
when I look at the package because all I can see is that scrumptious
electric purple ribbon.

I love the way the interior box slides out.  So charming.
