Little Boxes on the hillside.....

Ok - so they aren't on the hillside...they are on my kitchen counter!  When my son went away with the school, for a week, hubby and I went out on the town, caught a show, had a meal etc. On the way back from the show, we went through ChinaTown in London - and they had free Chinese newspapers to I did!  Of course, then I needed to use them...and then the C.R.A.F.T peeps posted their challenge which was to use print!  YAY! 

The boxes were ready made and part of a candy from yonks ago - thanks!  Its taken me a while to get round to using them - I still have 3 more to use!

So, I covered them in the newsprint, then inked them, then sealed them and did things on them!

One of them has glitter in the middle heart, one is plain glossy accents and the other is liquid pearls with flowers stuck in it!

I had a great, messy time doing these - will have to get on with the other 3 now!

thanks for looking
