Did you know? That the US Post Office offers Priority Mail flat rate shipping boxes at no charge? Well, you pay for the shipping of course, but the boxes are included in that rate and, if you're like me and want to alter or decorate the box prior to sending it out, you can usually (just make nicey-nice with your local post office staff ;) take them home with a smile . . . .
So that's what I did here. And I took pictures (some of which landed on Instagram) along the way. Wanna see?
Box covered in Gesso and stamped into while wet
Acrylic added before being sanded down to show the stamping underneath
Various washes of ink and water make arty drips. And then a head was added . . . .
There's the Little Box Girl!
And some scalloped, glittery details
She's ready to roll. Oh, except for the important bits: now I just have to address it . . .
Fun. You wanna go to the Post Office now don't you?
Thanks for looking,
