Hi everyone, Laurel here with my first post as a LESSology DT member and I am so excited!
Our challenge is trinket boxes, so many options I can't wait to see what you do.
Ah, Trinket boxes, I love trinket boxes.  I picked these up at a garage sale over the summer.


I wasn't sure at first what I would do with the book boxes, I used the purse one to make a gift card holder... you can see that here.  I decided to make some Halloween Decorations with them.  Another use could be to fill them with treats and use them as a Halloween Hostess gift.  Or I'll just keep them myself and make the goodies for me, ;)


First I spray painted them black then I just went to work layering and stitching the papers and embellishments all before I adhered the panels to the box.  I left the back plain so that they could be decorations and lay on a table or side table.

For this one I used my Cricut to cut out the spider, and a Martha Stewart punch for the web border, and tied on some Twine.
The close up of the larger book.  The crow frame was fussy cut from the pattern paper and adhered.  
I love how these turned out.  Can't wait to see what you do!

Hi everyone! It's Linda! I just love the challenge today. Altering a box is one of my favorite things to do. 
I started with a 90 cent box that I got at Goodwill. I sanded, painted, and inked it.  Then added some designer paper.





Next I  added the embellishments. The lace is from my St Vinnie's lace haul. The image is from Graph 45 paper. "Dream" was cut with my Cricut.
Now for a peek at the trinkets inside. I trimmed and stitched some felt to line the inside.

This was so much fun. I sure hope I gave you some ideas and that you will join in on the challenge here at LESSology.  Remember to do something you enjoy today.

Hi, it's Kirsty here, sharing with you an altered trinket box...
to start with.... my favorite eye-cream, that comes with a cute little box
trace the 4 sides of the box onto your favorite paper...
I like to "label" them at the back of the paper so they don't get mixed up...

now the lid.... a little distress ink all over the edges....
a little stamping won't hurt.....

so what should I do with those pages dug out from that old book?

how about a little bloom?

here you go..... a tiny trinket box

maybe I should give it to my husband so he could put a little "something" in there for me?
