We Need a Little Christmas, Right This Very Minute

I've had a few finishes that I haven't shown you. Here are the boys' sorting hat boxes. I used the directions from Blackbird Designs for the interior. Sort of. I got the idea to xerox the book jackets from them. You can see that at the bottom of the box, the boys have been put into Gryffindor. I couldn't find PVA glue, so I used Aileen's instant decoupaging medium

Absolutely perfect!!!

Those are great! Are you going to put anything in them? A stick for a wand or how about some of those Jelly Belly jelly beans that have flavors like skunk - have you ever seen those?

I love the finishing - if I had a box like that for my treasures, I'd be well chuffed!

Very cool!

I'm waaay behind in blog commenting so I'll combine things here. I read T is for Trespass a few months ago and really enjoyed it. I wish I'd kept up with the series and read them in order but I suppose it just gives me something enjoyable to read later on. I just started U is for (?) Undertow.

I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the Evanovich books. I haven't read the last two because all the females in my family (my mom included) love her books and I got the short of the stick since they were due back at the library before I got to read the last two. I did find that the last one I read was a bit too quick to rely on the same laughs and so on. I guess it works for Evanovich because the books sell... I just miss how much I enjoyed the earlie books.

Love, love the boxes and the sorting hats. The boys are bound to love them. Alma would call you an A+ student in box-covering.

Michelle said...

Oh, I love how you finished the boxes. What a great idea to copy the book jackets for the boxes. Love these!!!

Holy cuteness! I've not seen a project like this before, and I think I'm in love with it at the moment.

I love this! I'm still wild about the Doctor Who cross stitch ornament you made me last year, and I may have to attempt this pattern myself now. :D
