I picked up the boxes at our local Ben Franklin. I went with three different sizes for variety – each will hold a special treat. First off was painting two coats on each box – I went with Making Memories Cranberry (of course)(11), Avocado (5), and Paper Bag (8).
After the paint dried I laid them out to get a feel for their placement and picked some numbers to work with. I decided to repeat some of the same elements I used in the December daily album. Circle numbers from www.everyjotandtittle.etsy.com, chipboard from Basic Grey, and foam numbers from American Crafts.
After I had my plan worked out, I painted the chipboard numbers cream and then sealed each of the boxes with Mod Podge before attaching/adhering the numbers.
Now I just need to figure out on which wall I am going to hang these and what goodies will go inside each one…
