Mixed Media Monday...

This weeks challenge theme was: use "warm" colors. I made these teeny-tiny little boxes with tiny halloween fairies in them. I love to create these little boxes. These ones are the smallest I've ever made~I made 12 in total~Also.... I was needing a sturdy box to ship something in the mail ...soooooo I made a box out of an old scrabble board. Neat huh?I got rolls and rolls of the neatest old brown tape-- which is what I used on the fairy charms and the scrabble box.

Can you share how you made the scrabble box? Have one to up cycle and thought I'd try to make a "pencil" box for my daughters treasures. But I'm no good at figuring out measurements. Thanks!
