The Little Green Box

here’s why I like to be called by that name, a few cards to back up my story and many little green boxes.

I always fall in love with a new crafty hobby, buy tons of supplies, get VERY much into it and eventually- move on to the next one. I never get rid of all the gear, knowing it might seduce me again- with it’s shiny little glass tiles, it’s Japanese glossy beads or gorgeous textured paper.
When I was very much into beads and jewelery making, I sold them in these little green boxes (I bought a case with 200 of those). I stopped making jewelery and for a while they were left untouched and unloved, that is until I began card making.
I made cards that measure 9X9 cm, to fit the boxes, and sold them at “open house” sales, next to jewelery made by my friend Lilach. Whenever someone bought a piece from her, they were offered to accompany it with a box and a card, making it a lovely gift. It worked very well! People were taken by the cute proportions and bought most of them. I’m adding a few of them here, so you can have a good idea of what I’m babbling about…
