Friday Fiddling — Repurposing Boxes

Last summer I scored these nifty cardboard boxes from a local craft store. They are made of a sturdy cardboard and have dividers.

(Sorry for the blurry shot… but you can see this is a great size for holding my cut paper and finished cards.)

Harking back to my roots as a newspaper reporter, I covered one box with my Los Angeles Times, and added some appropriate headlines I had been clipping and saving. I spray painted the inside first, then when the paint was dry I used Mod Podge as a glue and a sealer.

This one keeps my clear stamp sets accessible.

Here are two others that I use to hold cards. One is covered with wrapping paper that looks like an Old World map, the other is my trusty newspaper again, with some travel cut outs.
