This box was fun to make. What I did first was collage pages from a children's school reader book on it, and then I took my house prints from different pieces that I've made and cut them out to make a little village that wraps around the box. And I really like what I did on the lid--
I have an old glass doorknob on it. If you are a flea market shopper, you know that these doorknobs don't come cheap. They're a heavy glass with brass hardware. Well, I found 4 of them at a garage sale (which is unusual in itself ) for $2.50 each. That's a VERY good price for these. I really like this for this box--it fits the theme of the houses so well.
And do you remember Button Town?
I don't think I'll ever get tired of making these boxes!
And I just want to remind everyone of my 2 giveaways--there's still time for you. I'll be drawing the names on Thursday. Just go to this post and leave a comment--good luck!
