tiny trinket box

one of the things i love best about making things with the pixie dust kits each month is the opportunity to play around with new and interesting products. for example: march's FLORIBUNDA kit contains an entire package of amazingly glamorous tim holtz baubles:



the great thing is that whereas sometimes in my "personal" crafting life i can feel a bit intimidated by something completely different...for some reason as soon as i put on my "pixie cap" i become an intrepid inventor trying to think of THE COOLEST thing to do with each item! :) i actually came up with what i think are a few good ideas for the baubles, but this one is my favorite:


yep, it's one of those .59 cent papier mache boxes from michael's, reincarnated as an authentic french eighteenth century pearl-footed trinket box. ok, well, maybe not quite...but c'mon... it's pretty cute, right?! want to know how i got the "feet" on there? well, it's on the pixie dust paperie blog today...you can cruise over there and read about it if you wanna! ;)


*my fellow pixies (kirsty, jessy, zielonooka, kandis, keri lee, and this month's very special guest miss cheryl!) have thought of some really great "bauble" ideas as well, which is why it's not a bad idea to check out the pixie blog regularly. i have to say that even though i visit every single day, i've NEVER come away without learning something. how cool is *that*??! ♥♥♥
