Boom Box Number Two

I’m  really zipping along on my ‘Craft It Forward’ gifts and just having a ball.  The first Boom-Box was stuffed full of ribbons, tags and gift topper’s  to help celebrate special days with flair. If you missed it,  here’s a photo or  visit the original post right here.

Boom Box Number One

I loved it so much, I immediately made a second one for another friend but with a whole new colour scheme.  The paper I used on the handmade box looks just like old wood, isn’t that fun!

Boom-Box Number Two

Just like the first Boom-Box, I included a set of monthly index cards for her recipe box to help track all her special days.

    1. Thanks Sunshine, I like that “Pizzaz’ HA. The good thing is you have a whole year to finish the ‘Craft it Forwards’ but I always have so many things I’m wanting to try I couldn’t wait. Maybe if we find a house, I’ll have less time, so seize the day I say. 😀

    1. Thank you Sheryl. I’m having fun, but maybe next time I should simplify because some of the crafters are feeling worried about making theirs 😦 Thats not what I was hoping for….Well for this year I’ll have fun spoiling people.

    1. Thank you Clowie! I’ve just seen a brand new dog die cut too, I only resisted because I’m traveling to the states at the end of the month and there’s a fab scrapbook store in San Jose where I’m going to visit Alys, pretty exciting! 😀 thanks for visiting!

      I’m the lucky one to have such great friends here. You’re such a great supporter and I enjoy your blog so much. Wish we could hang out and have a cup of tea. Thank you Julia, very your joyous support. mwwaaa K

  1. Loved the boxes. They just get better and better. I loved what you did with the wooden spools. I have losts of little spools and a few larger antique spools. Now I know what can be done with them when I have a place to display them again. I’m looking forward to Thursday too.

    1. Thanks for always leaving such beautiful compliments Marlene. I’m having a ball making these. I get to use up all kinds of paper and what not. The ribbon around the box was actually a piece of ribbon I got on a gift from Alys. Past the love please 😀 Those vintage wooden spools are harder and harder to come by. The larger ones are from France. There’s a wonderful store in Edmonton that sells all things french and romantic. I hope you’ll soon have the space to spread your wings. See you Thursday! xoK

  2. Okay – I’m officially hyperventilating and typing this whilst breathing very slowly through a paper bag. You see it’s a combination of love and fear… I love what you have created and the special details are so beautiful but (eeekkk!!) I have NO idea what to make – I’m not a crafter! Of course, I blame Alys for starting this 😉
    Would it be cheating to buy some craft materials, package them in a pretty box and ask the recipient to have some fun making their own?? Ha ha ha. Help Boomdee!

    1. LOL, PJ you worry for nothing. Your home is gorgeous so I know you have the eye. I really loved the lettering you did on that sign awhile back. Do you grow Lavendar? A little set of hand made shachets would be so so cute and useful. You are absolutely brilliant with your camera and editing the photo’s. Your vintage books with sparkly hearts the other day took my breath away. Add a little favourite saying, pop it in a frame and I would totally go gaga over that…..here’s one from Pinterest

      Maybe a quote from one of your favourite authors? I could go on and on….HEY, hand died eggs from your very own Chickens. Have you seen these where you make prints with leaves and flowers from your garden?

      Oh, those would be so fantastic in pastels. xoxoxox you will be amazing, you always are!

    2. PJ, I’m really sorry I got you in to this. I feel so bad that you feel pressured. I wanted to be nice by letting everyone who was interested in on Craft it Forward.

      I do agree, however, that Boomdee raises the bar. I had the same reaction when I saw her first post.

      That said, I’m having fun and in the end, it’s about sharing and caring. I love Boomdee’s ideas, below. You also had and idea about seed packets. Have fun xox

  3. Hey Boomie! Your Boom Boxes are simply great! With each one you make, they just keep getting better and better! You should start selling “Boom Boxes” as gifts, housewarming presents, etc. as they would be a great seller! I can’t wait to see how you make those silicon molds! Great job!

    1. Hey-ho my little pink boot wearing friend….splashed thru any puddles today? I just got back from another Apple One-on-One lesson. I bought a year of unlimited training when I bought my new MAC…so fun.
      Thank you for all those yummy compliments, I’m going to hug you right now (((( Val )))) I spend so much time on one project, I could never put a price on it. Or one that anyone would want to spend. I’m not sure it’d be fun for me if I had to do it for sale. But that’s so nice of you to think. See you on the flip side…or Thursday! xoK

  4. Your Boom Boxes are exquisite. I really look forward to these posts. You’ve taken wonderful photos of all the details that add up to charming, creative and practical craft it forward gifts for the lucky readers on your list.

    Some of my favorite details: the little bird (stamped?), perched on the flowers. Teapots and cats (two of my personal faves) and the wood-like paper lining the box. That is inspired.

    Is it Thursday yet? I don’t know if I can wait two whole days to see how you used those molds.

    1. Thank you Alys for all your cheer, mwaaaa. I was tickled to find that ‘old wood’ paper, it seemed perfect and was in the colour I was looking for. Sometimes all the planets align and it really comes together. That little bird on the card is a stamp, good eye. You always see the little details. That little ‘Lily of the Valley’ tag is left over from the paper I used on another project 😉 Those Martha Moulds have been used over and over so I thought that might be something you crafty girls might like to try.

      I can’t wait to see what magic is transpiring in your craft room. You’ve been working so much, I’m sure it’s hard to squeeze in craft projects. Journals are very, very hot right now too! There’s a new Stampington Magazine just for Journals and all the photo’s a gorgeous! Someone will love that Alys 😀 xoxo

  5. Oh I just LOVE these boxes of yours Boomdee…….absolutely gorgeous and so fun and personal too. Great ideas…….The most creative I get is decorating my grapevine door wreaths every Spring with different “things”…..and since Spring is refusing to come this year I may NEVER get one done….Whoever your lucky friend is that’s receiving your latest box is mighty lucky indeed.
