I can't believe I am the first to receive! Here is what Rondas sent me!

A wonderfully decorated box to store all my spools of ribbon in. I have so many they are always getting tangled and unwound. *note the cute hats! so fitting for me as most of my ribbons are used on them.


A look inside


A closer look at all the beads! I LOVE the little baggy in the center with the star and heart shaped charms. There are also some that look kinda like mickey mouse heads (that maybe stretching a bit but thats what i think they look like, and they are super cute!) There are also three little bags of SWAROVSKI Crystals! And just the right colors (blue/clear) for a sewing project that i am working on! Oh thank you , thank you , thank you!


A close up of a small jeweled box, perfect for my DD and her dress up rings (they are all over the floor in her room and let me tell you they HURT when you step on one!) Rondas also sent two small containers of antique glass pearls and silver rhinestone bead balls (not sure what to call them but they are so pretty!)


Last but not least, a ribbon organizer prefab with ribbon! *jumps up and down* more ribbons!! (can you tell I have a ribbon problem lol)

EDIT:

Cost list:
Purchased example (ribbons included) 30% off sale price: $8.40;
Photo box was 50% off: $1.59;
Misc beads, embellishment items and seed beads from free samples and gifts: $0.00;
I decorated the box with sharpies I already owned;
Leftover beads from keychain: 1/4th of $0.50 = $0.125
Total: $10.16

I am so glad you are happy!

I know that I didn't craft very much on this project and was afraid it would not be a happy making box because of it - BUT the pre-fabbed ribbon box had more ribbon than my budget had left to buy anyway, and it is a good example for future creation of your own boxes....

funny thing is that almost everything for beads that went into that box was absolutely free from about six different sources, most of which were samples from people trying to get me to buy stuff, LOL! The most time consuming thing I did was sort beads out - all the beads in the little tubes were mixed into one baggy!

I thought those charms looked like Mickey Mouse Heads too....

have fun and can't wait to see what you make!

They laugh at me because I'm different.
I pity them because they're all the same.

you too can get free samples - if you buy enough at one time and get a business license to do resale

plus all sorts of wholesalers crawl out of the walls when you register your business - I get free sample calendars, pens and other advertising stuff

unfortunately, I also get zillions more 1-800-buyme calls and emails - my spam mail on my business email address is in the 1000's and I always worry I miss customers because of the spam catcher - and then there is taxes to worry about...
