It's late on a Sunday night, but I am so excited about a project that I just completed. This week's Design Team Challenge on Let's Scrap was posted by Teresa and she got me motivated! Check out her challenge details here. Basically, she challenged us to think outside the box (our scrapping comfort zone) and create something for the home.
A few years ago, I bought what I call a "card box" from my Stampin' Up representative (thank you, Marilyn), decorated it with an ocean motif and kept in it cards that I made. When I was in a hurry for a card, I could always reach for that box, knowing that I would find something handmade for just the occasion! Over the years, however, I had tired of the box. Teresa's recipe box, created from a box much like mine, inspired me to strip the box I had (yep, still on a buying freeze) and recover it with something I love--vintage!
Here's the result (front and center and before the "bling" was added):
The top contains an embellishment (envelope with wings) from Enmarc Crafts, a scrapbooking distributer from South Africa, which I have come to love:
And the front again, after adding the bling!!
