I'm not one of the original participants, but I wanted to join in the project-making fun to celebrate the event anyway.
So, here's my starting point. A very uninspiring juice carton with the top cut off! Empty of course!
And with the edges painted black.
Then, I cut 4 panels from white card, one for each side of the carton, and ran them through my Cuttlebug machine with the swiss dot embossing folder. I also cut flowers, letters (WOYWW) and a tag with Sizzix dies and chose ribbon and buttons, playing with their positioning until I was happy.
I stitched the buttons on with contrasting thread and adhered the panels to the juice carton. Next, I made holes for ribbon at the top, stuck the letters onto the tag, and there it was....
.............my new Button Box.
I've Julia to thank for my new storage because I would never have bothered making it if she hadn't invited me to her party today!
