A perfect holiday party

Boxcutters, Exacto knifes, glue and a paintbrush

True, but us English majors sometimes forget. ;)

Happy New Year!

And yes those box boxes look fabulous, how did you do that?

JJ and m&t, perhaps I will write a post about the book boxes? The instructions are quite simple, it's cutting out the hundreds of pages that's a bit tricky. (I still can't believe I cut books! Gah!)
