Hello! Ever since I posted about the personal craft boxes I made for a friend and her daugther, I have had a few requests to make them for various clients. I thought I would share the most recent box with you. The Mom contacted me wishing for me to create a box for her daughter's Easter basket. The little girl loves to sew, make books, is super crafty, and since her name is Paris, she loves all things French. Oh, and her favorite colors are pink and lavender.
So I was completely thrilled when I found a vintage French fairy tale book that fit that particular color scheme. I used the book's images and feel as inspiration for the entire box. This is the cover of the box. I painted a wooden box a pale pink, added some vintage wallpaper, vintage lace, and these darling images from the book.
Of course, since she loves to sew and make books, I had to include one of my vintage hankie journal kits. The image is not attached, but included in case she wanted to add it. It's also from the vintage French fairy tale.
Since she loves to make books so much, I took one of our blank books and embellished the covers with more vintage papers. Now she has a couple of new books to write her stories in, draw, color, add pictures to, or anything else her creative spirit takes her.
The wonderful thing about these custom craft boxes is that once all of the crafts have been created, she now has a special keepsake box to store all of her treasures in!
I really enjoy making these boxes, so have decided to go ahead and add them to the shop. So if you know of a little girl, or a big girl that has a special event coming up and you would like to have a custom craft box created for them, just hop on over to the shop, or send me an email!
