Notions



This little white box by Melissa Frances has been stashed in my future projects drawer for several months. Unsure at the moment on what exactly I want to do with the outside I just started from the inside out. I started by papering the bottoms of each little compartment with vintage wallpaper and papers from one of the new K & Company lines. The new papers are so faded and pretty it's hard to tell which is which. Once I had the compartments all papered I began making my notions to store inside. If anybody knows of a punch that punches a floss card shape could you let me know? I traced mine and cut them out and then wound my favorite and most used colors around each one.

Here is the unfinished exterior in case you're unfamiliar with what this box looks like. The resin floral wreath on top is also MF and it's just plopped on top for now. I plan to watercolor it and adhere it once I move on to the outside.



Here's a picture of the bottom drawer with nice long compartments perfect for embellished stick pins.



And the top drawer that I haven't filled yet.



Tomorrow my daughter and I are going to Fresno with my sister and her husband to visit my brother-in-laws family. I'm excited to get out of town for a bit. Saturday we're going to shop Old Town Clovis, which is blocks and blocks of antique malls and shops. I'm bringing my camera so I'll snap a few pics while I'm there. Sunday I have a date in the kitchen with Mama Rosa who will be introducing me to the art of mexican cooking. I plan to come home packed down with a trunk full of junking finds and enchiladas!

I love the paper combinations - and the notions are so cute too. I have that box too, but mine is still stashed away - I may just have to bring it out this weekend.
