Altered Pencil Boxes

 Hi All,
Did you miss me?  I know, I've been a bit MIA, but I have good reason... Lots and lots of family stuff over the past two weeks.  I've been crafting here and there though, so now that all the craziness is over, I thought I'd catch up on some blogging...

Since Mom and Sis will be going to visit my bro and the family in Italy, I thought I'd take advantage of the "free" postage and whip up some goodie bags for the girls.  Yes, all of our families and extended families only have girls on my side, so it makes life easier for me.

I picked up these cute boxes at Target's dollar section.. I love that section!  You never know what you are gonna find!  They were part of a fruit theme, so I got a bunch of stuff to put into the boxes too that all matched perfectly.  Since the boxes were plain, I decided to alter them up a bit and personalize them too.  Since the younger three girls still liked Hello Kitty, I cut some using my old Sizzix die.  For the older girl, I decided to go with a flower cut from a SU Sizzix die and add a rhinestone flourish as an accent. 

Got some of those foam letters and put each girl's name on their box and added on some small flower accents.

Here's a close up of one of the boxes.

I just love how these came out!  Have a great week!
