Frequent readers of mine would know by now that i collect boxes. i love them. i have quite a few of them, i use them as my storage boxes to store all my arty crafty bits. i was out shopping the other day and i saw these two.
They are actually paper mache boxes. paper mache is actually quite an easy craft. a bit messy but a fun thing to do. be prepared to stick your hands into those wet sticky papers, glue and starch! and it'll probably take days for it to be all dried up and ready. but the end result will be all good. the last time i did paper mache was when i was teaching at a preschool some years back. the kids loved it.
The thing that attracted me about these two boxes was of course the colour, my kindda colour - pastel and their sticker in front of the boxes. they are absolutely sweet and as often the case when i buy something new, and especially at a bargain, and i'm all in love with them, i'd put them on my side table, next to my bed, so that i can look at them and smile when i go to bed! :)
