Box of bells

I'm not sure what inspired me more, the little bells (previous post) or the box they came in! I just couldn't resist altering this little piece of packaging.
Three little compartments waiting to be filled with goodies!
I've run out of scrabble tiles to spell anything useful, there's only so much a gal can do with Q and V so I flipped them over and stamped my own letters

Margaret your easter box is so sweet and wonderful, love your box there is so much to look at in it.

Oh wow, Margaret. This is simply amazing. Your alphabet stamps go so well with the scrabble tiles. Great way to think outside the box. Packaging in the US is not nearly so nice. You are really lucky finding this. Easter can't be far away, now!

You make this look effortless. I LABORED for MONTHS on a shadow box for Linda (Christmas) and it didn't turn out half as nice. Not even a quarter as nice. Maybe she needs to mail it to you for the shabby touches.
