Altered Tea Box Swap

I belong to a mixed media website called Mixed Media Art. As part of one of the forums there, I am taking part in an altered tea box swap. (For an example of an altered tea box, click here). We take an empty tea box and alter it, then fill it with goodies for our swap partners.

My starting point . . .
I am all done with mine, but cannot post until my swap partner receives it. I will definitely be posting pictures in my altered tea box "big reveal," as well as reporting on what I received- so keep those eyes of yours peeled!

In other craft news, my son, Liam, is obsessed with weaving potholders using a plastic loom kit. Often when a woman my (very young!) age sees him with it, she immediately lights up with a big smile and tells me stories of how much she loved weaving pot holders with a very similar kit. I would imagine this would have been kits sold in the late 70s and early 80s. For some reason, even though I think I did almost every craft known to man, I have no memory of doing this weaving one.

Do any of you have memories of using a kit like this?
