Before and After

Before: A cardkeeper box from Hallmark

After: A treasured gift for a dear friend

This was a birthday gift for my childhood BFF Sherri. She loved it. I loved making it. The red perfectly matches her home office wall color. The "S" is a grungboard piece that was covered with paper and inked. The rest of the pretties are flowers, bling and some scrapbook embellishments. The handle at the top is a wooden knob and the "feet" are beads I had in my collection of stuff for ages. It is proof that I CANNOT throw anything craft related away because I MIGHT need it someday. And I did and love the way they look.
