Welcome to the StencilGirl and Eileen Hull blog hop! Today I created a box using some of Eileen's licensed dies with Sizzix, her line of ColorBox Blends ink with Clearsnap, and of course, StencilGirl stencils. This altered box is super easy to make and will be a keepsake you keep for years and years. It would also make a fabulous Christmas or birthday gift – fill it with candies or fancy soaps or even a pretty necklace! Cats like it too (not recommended as a kitty gift though).

I am not sure where my comment went off to in cyber space but I just wanted to leave a note to let you know how much I love the little treasure box you created. I like the lacy stencilling and the great colours you used. The lace over the hinges is such a good solution to covering up those ugly old hinges. Thanks for sharing! :)
