After having my craft room re-modelled here I am still on a mission to tidy the items in it.
The embossing folders were next in line for being re-organised they used to look like this.
Now they look like this.
After deciding what my storage box was going to look like I measured the largest embossing folder, which is a Spellbinders M-Bossibilities, then went from there. Worked out how many compartments were needed before cutting all the bits from greyboard. The hinges were made from blue heavy cardstock.
The overall size of the box is 12 3/4″ x 6 1/2″.
Tidied everything away before giving the whole thing a paint of black gesso.
Not sure why but no matter how careful I am that black gesso seems to get everywhere, is it only me or do you have the same problem???
When decorating the box I realised it would fit very nicely for FSC’s next challenge which is words.
Yes that’s right FSC are having ‘WORDS’ …
… now I know what you are thinking but they are not the argumentative kind. The FSC design team are all so very warm and thoughtful that cross words are unheard of.
LL chose the theme (lovely Laura) and what a popular one it is as we all love to add words to our projects. These can be sentiments, quotes or even a poem like Dot has chosen for her make.
Words are so very powerful, they can stimulate and animate people and that’s what FSC would like to see in your makes this month.
Definitely sitting proudly on my desk with a few other things I have made, can you remember the paint brush holder here.
What you haven’t seen before is the book ends that hold my collection of Compendium of Curiosities books – I just never got around to doing a post on these.
The sides can be seen on the desk so used stamps which I particularly like.
My next project is a box to hold my stencils in!!!!
I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning. Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.
