Building a Giveaway Box

STEP 1: Pick out a postcard while you are at Hammerpress during the Crossroad's Art District First Friday.


Priscilla made sure I got my postcard selection recorded by being my paparazzi. 

We have a winner!











































































STEP 2: Create a leather envelope to be used as a wallet (pictures on this later).

STEP 3: Make caramel candies and wrap them in parchment paper. (Note: caramels are very sticky and will fuse to the wax paper -___-) 

STEP 4: Make a reusable drawstring canvas bag to hold caramels.





































STEP 5: Find a reusable box to ship it in from Blackwell Thrift Store.

Oh you know, just a hallway of mirrors that leads to nowhere.

I prefer the center box but the postcard doesn't fit.  I liked the pop of color and the metal clasp of the first one, so that is the one I went with.



STEP 6: Package it all up and send it to the Steven, the giveaway winner.

The photos of Blackwell are killing me. I haven't been there in years and it is so good to see it hasn't changed a bit.
