Sketch/Project Box

Hi Everyone,
I was getting caught up on some Live with Prima shows last week and saw this box that Marion made. I loved it and decided to try one for myself. I made mine as a project/sketch box. The box itself only took about an hour to put together, it was picking out what paper to use on the box that was tough. I  love October Afternoon pattern paper and I had a really hard time persuading myself to cut it....Especially some of the older paper that is harder to find. Check out Two Peas in a Bucket if you are looking for some OA.

Here is a quick video on my box. Click HERE to watch it on You Tube.



Check out Marion's Ustream video HERE

Have a great week :)
Hugs and happy crafting,

  2. Great project. I like your take on the box, so cute, something I would love to receive or make. I also like the colors you used, you did a great job stepping out of your "comfort zone".

    I really look forward to your postings. You are so creative and not only that, your videos are clear and easy to understand. Keep up the excellent job that you are doing.

  5. What a great project box! I actually liked the one you made more than Marion's. Your inside note books were also nicer with the binding you used. Great finishings.

  16. I love your box and books for the inside. You can always make me one if you want to. LOL
    I like the idea of turning the books inside into mini albums and giving the whole thing as an awesome gift. Where did you get your box from. If you could email me your answer. I would appreciate it. Put box in the subject line so that I know it's from you.
    Thanks

  17. I just finished watching Marion Smiths video and I agree with barbsmith2536 that your's is way nicer. I like your books way better than what she did. Thanks for such great videos.
