Altered Tool Box

I did it!  I finished my first altered object.  Do you remember the tissue box? Well, here it is now…

It actually wasn’t as hard as I thought.  I used all stuff in my home.  I covered in in white felt, and then in some flannel I had left over.  I glued on one piece of ribbon to hide the seam, and a piece of lace around the top.  I painted 2 pieces of cereal box blue, to divide up the inside.  Then a string of pearls around the top over the lace. And voila!  Kinda proud me thinks.  Already is full or tools and has an honored spot in my craft space. =D

Have you altered anything lately? Tell me about it in the comments…

Altered box #1 update

Here is an update for the work I did today on my first altered box for Your Stuff…Use It!

I cut the top off the Calgary Flames tissue box.  Then I reinforced the inside seams with strips of more cardboard.  I lined the outside with some white craft felt I had an over abundance of.  Then I used fabric I had left over from a pair of jammie pants I made eons ago.  He is what it looks like right now…

Are You Ready?

So, I realized today that tomorrow is the first of September!  Where did August go?  If I am going to do ‘Your Stuff… Use It!’, I need to get off my butt, and put my thoughts on paper so I can start!  So, I present to you, my plan!  (both so you can keep me accountable, and on schedule, and if you want to join me, you can!)

I am thinking 1 topic (but maybe multiple projects in each topic) per week.

So, here is the time-table it am envisioning…

Week 1 (sept. 1-7)- Greeting Cards

Week 2 (sept. 8-14)- Art Journal Page

Week 3 (sept. 15-21)- Simple book binding

Week 4 (sept. 22-28)- Alter something… (to be determined ((I have never done this one, so I am going in blind… gulp!))

Last 2 days- catch up on any unfinished projects

Bonus Projects- A Canvas (either flat or box)

I will list what I use for the projects, it will keep me honest!

And I thought if other people do end up coming to play with me, there could be a possibility of prizes and a “Your Stuff…Exchange It!” exchange.  Because who doesn’t like receiving ‘new’ stuff? 😉

You can join as many or as few weeks as you like… do one, or do the whole thing! (and if I do it by myself, well, it will be all that more challenging to me if I have to inspire myself 😉 )

If you want to play, it’s easy!  Leave me a comment down below my post (of the week, cards for cards, mixed media for mixed media, ect), with a link you your post.  That is it. Easy right?

So, who is in with me? =D
