We bought some paper mache boxes yesterday to try to make painted boxes with applied photocopies of stitched samplers, similar to what is shown in the new BBD book, Joyeux Noel. I just saw the fabric covered one that Alma is showing in her latest BBD blog post (see link in left margin). This, too, is very cool; I just bought some of the fabric that she used on ebay a couple of weeks ago.
These seem like easy, fun, quick projects...but I don't have too much talent or patience or confidence for "crafty" projects like this. I'm hoping that working with friends will teach me more of all of these.
Any pictures of boxes that you would like to share with us? Would love to see them.
