Last night was our monthly Crafty Gals meeting and as always it was a fabulous time. Until about two hours before the meeting, I was standing in our kitchen thinking about the meeting and that I had no clue what to work on. Then, I started to think about my die organization in my craft room and how I have no efficient storage for my small dies. It was then that I looked at the empty 48 count Fiber One box in my kitchen and the project idea was born.
Before heading to the meeting, I removed the cover of the box, adhered a piece of chipboard on either end (the ends have box folds to "smooth" out) and applied black Gesso inside and out. At the meeting I brought many sheets of Graphic 45's Artisan Style papers, doilies, gold marker, pearls, and black flower ribbon. The box was almost completely finished by the end of the meeting- this morning the green twine and buttons were added. Admittedly, I would have loved to add more details and layering but lack of available surface space in my craft room means that the box had to take up the least amount of space as possible.
Here is the front iso view of the box:

Thanks for stopping by! I do hope you enjoyed the upcycled box. And don't forget about the Tim Holtz Stencil Giveaway!
Have a happy, crafty day!
