Fairy (non bio!)

I never throw them away as these boxes are very useful!

I made this one yesterday:
Just started on this one (with a hint of 'you know who')..

And this one a while ago..
Just cover them with lovely papers and anything else you have to hand.


Use them to store your crafty bits.

I'm making a few for the next fair..and will load them with some useful 'crafty bits' too.


Meanwhile...a few more of these...


I've put them in my shop

I reuse the fairy boxes too - usually for posting things as they are so nice & sturdy. Very clever idea you have though!

Great idea about recycling the boxes - I must get ahold of some pretty papers to play with as they look great. Love the frames too x

The storage boxes look fantastic! I use the large fairy (non-bio!)so I think I might have to change to the smaller boxes just so I can make one of these! Your frames look great too!
