A little box for my stamps...

Recently the Scrap-Room kit that I subscribe to have started having an add-on of clear acrylic stamps. Which I of course couldn't resist. WHo can? Only I know me and if I don't have the stamps to hand, they won't be used. So I have thought of a good way of storing these little packets for a while now. And I decided to join my mission with my Product Playground class and do something with a frame...

The only suitable and quite small thing I could find was one of those standard ugly cardboardboxes (should have taken a "before" photo really, it was that ugly and full of brown tape too )...that when you cut in half you see a wavy middle. That was what I had that would be suitable, so that was what it had to be. After a little paper (Basic Grey and Imagination Project), a lot of double-sided tape and quite a few buttons (there---> I have my frame - a frame of buttons!! LOL!) I ended up with my little box to hold my stamp packets.

I chose the Basic Grey paper for the outside as it's "cheery and happy" and it makes me smile. And when you're going to have something on display it's nice if it makes you smile...

Brilliant idea and it look just fab! Any stamps are hard to resist in my book, I am an addict for sure. Think I need to talk to you about kits, I can never decide on one, never have, but the Scrap Room ones get great press!
