Fringe Benefits

 I have yet to meet (in real life) my sweet friend, the amazing Sharon of Cupcakes and Cutlery. I am amazed by her talents and adore her modern fetes. Simple, clean, and unabashed use of color…she always creates gorgeous parties. I think she’s been holding out on me. I have heard claims that she’s not very crafty, blah, blah, blah…I think she’s been telling stories. When I opened my Christmas present, I screamed. For real. And the boys came a’running. Then they screamed…er…squeaked. Trust me there is a very long, very hilarious story as to the arrival in Feb, aka this box has traveled more in two months than I have in a year. She is like the hip, totally awesome sister I never had. Seriously, as I am drooling over the fringe that is showing up all over the place (I have a roundup this week), she sends me a box that looks like this…

…and I love her.

…but she better do a DIY.

…because I am SO doing this. Who knew you could make a plain USPS box SO cool?

Oh, and Sharon, BTW you have to do more DIYs…xo


  1. I'm glad you liked it. My hubby couldn't understand why I would take the time to do it but I knew it would be appreciated. :) As for more diy's, I'll try. I realized this weekend that I get bored making them. The act of taking a picture of every step and then the explanation...yawn. But we'll see. :) Merry Christmas! Maybe I should start preparing next year's gift now.

  2. Wow, I would have died! And thanks for letting me know about Cupcakes and Cutlery. I think I am her newest fan!

  3. Oh, that is so sweet...and super-creative! I mean a UPS box?!

  4. now that's a package! i would love to see this done to chinese takeout boxes for party favors! darling!
