Pretty Packages

 I  love getting mail, don't you?

So recently I wanted to send some homemade beads to an artist I great admire: Lorelei Eurto.

I wanted the box to be a little special too so I decided to dress up the inside of a Small Flat Rate Priority mail box.

I gave it a patchy coat of Chalky Finish Paint from DecoArt in Escape.

While I was at it, I did another one in Serene.

I gathered some toilet paper tubes and a pair of scissors.

I cut each tube into 3 parts.

Then I gave each tube a patchy coat of chalky finish paint in a few colors.

I used a glue gun to glue each tube into the box and then i filled it with some of my favorite beads.

Hopefully she will find something to use in her designs.

I used little pieces of tulle to add some color and fun to the box.

A feather from the chickens topped all the polymer goodness.

I can't wait to see how they end up in Lorelei's designs.

Thanks for stopping by....
