Every now and then I come across a challenge that really inspires me and one such this week was the Project Tuesday challenge to make an altered box or tin. I love boxes - I used to make them, boxes for books, for photographs, for albums, for storage - and, in fact, a large wardrobe-style leather covered jewellery box, complete with inserts, pewter door panels and mahogany knobs (all made by me) for my mother's 60th birthday, a few years ago. (If I can find photographs, I'll post them - it's awesome!)
So I was delighted to have a go at this challenge and here's the result:
Other: Small wooden box; 7 Gypsies measuring tape self-adhesive ribbon; buttons, pins, etc., from stash
I started off this project by trying to decide what I would put in the box. My last box had been a small gardening-related project and I didn't want to repeat the theme. So I decided that this one would be a sewing box, for the essential sewing kit, perhaps for Daughter to have in her room at university.
