Bohemian Storage Box

Hi Everyone...it's Kath here...Happy New Year to you all...did you make any New Year Resolutions such as tidying up your craft space, yes me too and with that in mind I decided to use a little box that's been gathering dust to make a little storage box for all those little crafty bits and pieces that have a tendency to go walkabout just when you need them...perfect for buttons, charms or if you're into sewing, needles and thread...
So I set to work covering the box with Typewriter and Dilettante papers from the Bohemian Collection, perfect for the shabby chic look I wanted to create...
and then comes the fun part, decorating the top of the box with Kraft Mannequin,  Vintage Photographs, Bohemian Tickets and Frames
stamping with the Printers Block Stamp Set which I have to say is one of my favourites
before adding lots of little bits and pieces of ribbon and lace, cute sewing reels, teeny weeny buttons, Bohemian Die Cut Flowers and of course Candi...
Why don't you have a go at making yourself a little storage box...perhaps recycling an empty chocolate box left over from Christmas,we would love you to share it with us all.  Winter has arrived in the UK so if the weather is nasty where you live, stay warm and safe and Happy Crafting.
Hugs Kath xxx
