Well, here we are again. It's the holiday season and I hope The Crafted Box will be part of your celebration this year. I've got lots more in the works so please check back soon and in the meantime, Happy Holidays!
As it happens, I have several friends who have birthdays on or near the 4th of July. So this year, I had this idea to decorate one of my house boxes for the 4th. I found these bunting stickers in the scrapbooking section at Michaels and they fit perfectly under the window, and well, voila! I wasn't sure what the yard should look like though, until I remembered a story one of my friends told me about her 5th of July birthday... as a little girl, she always thought that the fireworks on the 4th were for her! So I tried to capture that idea on the box especially for her. Enjoy.
My name is Loretta Merlo and I am the designer and crafter behind The Crafted Box.
