LI'L LUNCH BOX ALTERED
A BUNCH OF LI'L BOXES
Today my VTT is some old cabinet cards and photo's I picked up at a yard sale. I could not believe my luck....there were about 14 of them and only 50 cents ea. That was a great deal! They usually go high and they are in great demand in the craft/art world. I have already taken them to staples and copied them on to card stock to use in my altered art projects. Also in the pic are some vintage S&P shakers, that I am going to use to put my glitter and German glass glitter in. Much better than plastic tubes that it comes in. And also a box of card with butterfly's, and again for altered art.
I noticed going to yard sales here in Florida , there is not much in the way of old or vintage things.
Not like it is up north. Might be hard for me to get things to post here. Might have to go to antique stores and take pic's to share. Would that be cheating???
Now for what I have been working on. I got the little mini lunch boxes at WM last year after Christmas sale. They and candy in them. Collaged the out sides, and made tags for the inside. The tag was made to hold a small pic and an area on the back for journaling. I have done them with a theme, the one on the right of pic 2 is Easter theme titled "EGG HUNT" spelled out with little beads on the front with a pic of a puppy with bunny ears on! Too cute. I have a couple Christmas ones, one for babies, and a sort of generic one. I did not embellish the others that I have done, could not make up my mind if people wanted them embellished or would they want to do it.
