Hello! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! Just wanted to pop in today and share with you a peek into last month's Little Pink Box. First up, for the Strawberry Patch market last month I created some deluxe cabinet card inspiration kits containing all sorts of embellishments that I thought went well with whomever was in the photo. They were a pretty big hit at the show, so I made some petite inspiration kits for the box.
They have antique ledger paper, some very old silk fabric, antique and vintage lace, vintage appliques, vintage buttons, and vintage millinery. All sorts of things to create with. (I will be putting some of the deluxe kits in the shop soon)
Each box contained a vintage mailing tube that I found at an "estate sale" for a factory that was closing a little while ago. I still kick myself for not buying even more stuff from that fabulous old lab/factory! Ugh. But these mailing tubes were used for sending lab tubes, and other things like that so they're quite sturdy. I added a pretty label to the front and thought they would be great for storing things in their studio like paint brushes or water color pencils. They would also be really pretty as vases, I thought!
I turned these fantastic old tobacco boxes ("for a man's smoke" as it says on the box) into lace samplers. I forgot to snap a photo of the lace, but there were bits of several different vintage and antique laces.
And the creative project kit was making these darling little bobbin dolls. The kits included all sorts of vintage images to choose from, the vintage clothes pins, vintage pink bobbins, and some embellishments. They also contained all sorts of words or "titles" to give the little dolls some personality.
Little Pink Box has celebrated it's first year this summer and to celebrate I am going to do a couple of different things, so check back with me in the next couple of days. However, if you wish to grab a July box, they're only on sale for a another day or so.
So, check back for a little celebration, and super easy but cute tutorial, and a shop update this week!
Enjoy what's left of your Sunday! xo, Cerri
