My Decorated "Busy-Bee" boxes are ready to purchase!!

I've just completed these 2 decorated boxes, which I've decided to call my "Busy-Bee" boxes. I'm giving you the opportunity to purchase them from me right here from my blog, before I send them to my ebay.

You can just click on any of the photos if you'd like a larger view.

I've created these sweet little boxes for a busy needleworker or craftsperson.

I think they'd be very useful for storing all types of craft items such as buttons, threads, beads  and a variety of crafting notions, not to mention bear making supplies!!

They would make a beautiful display in your studio/craftroom and great to take supplies along to class in.

The first one is in pink & green shabby colours. I've covered the box in a green stripe cotton print.
I've added a vintage image using a decoupage technique, so as to protect it, and then embelished around it with ric-rac, handmade suffolk puffs and buttons. All the embelishments have been hot glued on for extra strength.


This box is 5 3/4 inches square by 3 1/2 inches high.

The second box has a more vintage look about it.
The image has again been added with the decoupage technique for protection.
The box has been covered in a pretty cream mauve and green cotton print with letters on it. I've added some vintage lace to give an aged look. It has the same handmade suffolk puffs with extra buttons added randomly over the lid and some pink ribbon.

This one measures 5 3/4 inches by 4inches by 2 3/4 inches high.

The images I've used to create these boxes are from Julie at
