Altered Box

This weekend is the Stampin’ and Pamperin’ Retreat for Splitcoast members in Cincinnati. The organizers of the event invited me to attend and give a demonstration. Hehe I don’t think they know what they are in for. I’ve never shied away from a crowd and tend to fly by the seat of my pants. I can remember when my daughters were in grade school and I was president of the PTO. I would stand up in front of all the parents and talk and talk. Later when it was all over, I would look at the rest of the board and without hesitation ask them what I said. Even though I always had notes, and tried to stick to them, I would never remember what I was talking about. Back to the retreat – I get to meet, none other than JanTink who was the other “Dirty Girl” invited to give a demonstration. Needless to say, I’m rather excited about the entire weekend. One of the events for the weekend is a shoebox shop, which I still have to decide what I’m going to do. But, there is also a 3D Swap taking place. Anyone interested can make a 3D non card item, wrap it up, and then you will be given a number, which enables you to pick one of the wrapped items. I worked most of the day yesterday on a little box. I was trying to decide what to do, thought of a spiral bound journal, and headed out to the Dollar Tree. Now, I didn’t find any journals, but they did have these marvelous hinged paper boxes. I bought all the larger white ones they had. In my twisted way of thinking, they are gonna be great for card sets that you want to give as gifts.

I have two pictures to share, one of the box closed and then one with the box open.

  9. Congratulations! This post was so terrific we included it in our latest Blog Carnival on Craft Critique!

    We would love it if you’d “share the link love” and let your readers know about the Altered Items Carnival on Craft Critique… but we don’t require it.

    Of course if you’d rather not have your link included in the carnival then just let us know and we will remove it.
