I subscribe to Birchbox and while I enjoy getting a new stash of samples each month, what I really love is the box they come in Smiley.

I hang on to them and use them for wrapping gifts or storing little bits and bobs.

This month, I made a little spring painting to cover the top and filled it with some crafty goodies for my friend, kittykill.



I painted water color paper with water colors and some craft paint. I also used gesso, some glitter paper, vintage sheet music and a bird cut from a post card.



I love the natural exterior of the Birchbox so I didn't want to cover that up but I did want to add a little pizazz so I outlined the box top with gold washi tape.



The inside was filled with thread and buttons, bottles, felt, beads and lace, washi tape and other random crafty bobbles.



Thanks for checking it out!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
