Spring Feet!

****(The Spring Feet Kit in my Etsy shop is now sold)****

Bermember when I posted the Valentine's Day Gift, Be Sweet To Your Feet? My niece, Jenny, when she was little would say "bermember" instead of "remember. Her Mom, Laura and I still say it because we think it's funny. Well, in my quest to make some room in my crafty area by using my supplies up, I decided to make some "springy" pedi kits for Jenny, a few of her friends, and one of my other nieces, Sam.

I was inspired by this posting on Splitcoast by Virgo5. She was kind of enough to provide a FREE template to make the hanging box, which is located here. The only thing I did different was to make two hanging boxes to put on either side of the nail polish remover.

Extreme close up:

I wanted to personalize the boxes. So, using a Cuttlebug Alphabet, I cut the girls' names out of this cool iridescent paper. The tag was cut out using the Papertrey Ink Matstack Layer #1. Then, I punched out some paper flowers and butterflies and attached them to the boxes. The boxes were filled with brightly colored socks and other pedi necessities.

The other side view:

Paper: Recollections, Colorbok
Misc: Pedi accessories, ribbon, sticky strip, cuttlebug groovy times alphabet, papertrey ink matstack #1, paper punches, pearls, pop up dots

Now, for some crazy reason, when I first decided I wanted to make these, I bought a bazzillion nail kits and little bottles of nail polish. Well, I still haven't used them all up (insert shocked face here!), so I have decided to list them in my Etsy shop. I bought them at Target in the Dollar Spot. There are 15 nail kits and 19 packages of nail polish. The nail kit includes a pair of clippers, an emery board, and a toe separator. Each package of nail polish contains two bottles. This whole loot fits in a medium flat rate USPS shipping box. I'm selling the entire box for the bargain price of $10.00 plus the cost of shipping! This is an easy project that would be perfect for girls to make at slumber parties, summer camp, etc. I will be posting box of supplies, after I post this, on Etsy. So, if you are interested, go check my shop out.

Thanks for stopping by,
