Hello there =)
My mixed media art journey has begun and I have a few crafts under my belt: ATCs, an art journal canvas and inchies. I’m going to need someplace to store my creations until I get a chance to use or display them.
I received a gorgeous brass pencil box for Christmas and couldn’t bear to toss the box it came in. But who needs a box in a box?
Better make some use out of it otherwise I’ll have to throw it out. ::gasps in horror::
Isn’t it cute? The brass pen case is Midori brand and from Baum Kuchen. Sorry no pictures of the case today, forgot. But it’ll appear soon I’m sure.
Simple grey-ish cardboard with stunning copper colored staples on the sides. Again, no photo. I took one but couldn’t quite get it too look right.
I could almost use the box the case came in AS IS but then there would no need to write about it, now would there? ;)
These are a few of my favorite washi tapes; a nice turquoise, gold and brown theme. And those elephants are too cute.
Washi taping falls under gluing photography rules here at Sarah Celebrates; no in-action shots.
Lining each piece up the best I could, careful not to leave gaps or overlap, I wrapped the box top in washi tape across the top and down the sides. I simply stuck the ends of the tape up in the inside of the lid.
Being small in size, this box would be perfect for my recent start to an inchie collection. Why not top it off with an inchie?!
I took a 1 inch by 1 inch piece of cardboard (cereal box), covered it in glue and gold glitter and topped off with my Mod Podge Dimensional Magic.
Ignore that glitter-less spot… Perfection is overrated ;)
A dab of super glue secured it to the top and now I have a perfect little place I can keep all my miniature works of art!
Do you have pretty little boxes you keep treasures in?
