Hello there. Today I wanted to share a box I decorated this weekend. I purchased it from Michaels for about (I think) $4.00. It's a super cute box. I had planned (and will for now) to make it for my Copics. I was storing them in green bean cans that I had decorated all purty... but that wasn't cutting it anymore (I was at the point where I needed to eat a can of green beans ;) hee hee. So, I thought up this idea. Ok, here's a look at my finished box:
The first thing I did was paint around the edges and the handle of the box using acrylic paint. Next came the measurements... oh what fun! I decorated it using Cosmo Cricket's Togetherness paper, chipboard stickers, and letter stickers. For the paper, I used Scott's glue to adhere it to the wood. I use this glue on all of my paper & wooden projects (that I use wet glue on) and find that it works great!! It goes a long way and isn't too expensive from Michaels (use those coupons, girls!), but for the chipboard elements, & detailed work, I like to use Glossy Accents. I always feel like I can trust it more. Like, no question whether or not it's gonna stick. I also used pop-up Glue Dots to layer. Here's a few additional pics.
I really like how it came out. I love it in fact! The problem... it ain't gonna work for my Copics! I mean, seriously, look at this crap!! First of all, I cannot buy one. more. Copic! Secondly, it's just NOT practical! HOW am I supposed to see what color I need?? I've purchased them in 2s and 3s so I can blend...and I wont even be able to find them in here! Ok, this is a temporary thing. I'll save up for the Copic holder. I really like the box though. It's super cute... just. not. for. Copics! I'm pretty sure I'm right... But it is one lovely box!
