This projected started with two components:
1) a poorly thought out decorated shipping box…. decorated with Mod-Podged book pages and doodles with a variety of Sharpie colors… poorly thought out because I hadn’t considered what would happen if the box was left out in the rain (sticky mess) or stuck in a hot mail car all day (sticky mess). I set the box aside.
2) a need for “note cards” to include in swap packages. I’ve been looking for note cards I like for months now… nada.
And then it hit me — I sliced up the box, used an x-acto to carve a heart in each slice and then colored the heart. Voilà! Note cards that suit me.
And later I’ll explain how this project (and a sink filled with dirty dishwater) led to a new brooch for me.
Oh yes, you read that right.
