More decorated boxes


I have been making lots more stock as I have 4 more craft fairs before Christmas. I thought I would share some more of the pretty boxes I sell which hubby paints and I decorate. He really enjoys painting them. He sets up his table and cloths in the conservatory, plays some vinyl on his 70's radiogram and paints. We have tried various paints, the newest is the pink which is a chalk paint and went on very smoothly so I shall be checking out what other colours are available.

The pleated ribbons are from Stamp an Create, the lilac one from Fantastic Ribbons. Both of these were challenge prizes where I won vouchers for their shops. The lace is from crafty Ribbons. Flowers are from I am Roses, pearl sprays from Wild Orchid and I coloured the wooden butterflies with Zig and Wink of Stella pens.
