Okay, so after I finished making the Squinkie soaps for my nieces, I had to figure out what I was going to put them in to gift them. The ziploc bags they're in right now just won't cut it for Christmas gifts. In my stash I found 2 boxes of the cardboard/papier mache type and spray painted them white.
Side note: One of the boxes I've had since I was in high school. I believe my grandparents gave it to me as part of a Christmas or Valentine's Day gift. It had roses printed all over it. The other I think I got at a yard sale.
Then I chose colors: yellow for one niece (that is her current favorite color....or at least it was at Thanksgiving, it might have changed since then) and pink for the younger niece.
Then, I painted a wooden K & E (first letters of the names). You can see the E above. I used Plaid metallic purple to paint that one before I coated it with Plaid Extreme glitter paint. The K I painted green and then coated it with the glitter paint.
