Client Box

I made this for a friend who is a hair stylist. She wanted a cute box to put all of her clients names and phone numbers in. I have made a bunch of these, but used them as recipe boxes. I think I like this one too much! I don't know if I can give it away:) I just bought the box from Roberts Crafts. They have all different sizes and shapes. Then I found the cute zebra paper at Hobby Lobby. The "clients" letters are stamped with craft ink and then embossed with embossing powder. If you have never used embossing powder before, you should try it. You just pour it on the wet ink and heat it with a heat tool that is basically a blow dryer.

When you adhere the paper to the box, just make sure you use tacky tape so it sticks really well. You don't want the paper to fall off:) I didn't take a very good picture of it, but there is a black handle on top and I tied a bunch of coordinating ribbon to it!

Freebies 2 Deals Giveaway!

In honor of the "Freebies 2 Deals" website ( I am doing a giveaway on my own blog! I love the Freebies website. It gives me a heads up on all the good deals that I can take advantage of. I will be giving away this little girls bow holder. I started making these when I found myself with so many bows that were just getting smashed in a little box. I have seen a couple of different versions of these. Some are really big Tu-Tu's that you hang on the wall and are pretty much life size. I didn't need one quite that big, so mine is a scaled down version! This is the actual one you will get if you win.

Here's how it works:

1-Leave a comment on my blog with your full name and your email address

2-Add yourself as a follower of my blog.

3-Check back on my blog on June 7th at 12:00 to see if you won.

4-If you did win you have 24 hours to contact me on my blog or the giveaway will go to someone else! Good Luck:)

Also, if you do not win and are interested in purchasing one I sell them for $17! I can do custom colors to match your little princess's room!
