I spy in my little eye five different tapes on this little box! I picked up some gold thin duct tape the other day when I was in a dollar store. That is on the edges while all the tape in the middle is washi. I had no idea what I was planning on using the duct tape for, but hey, you can't pass up gold duct tape! It's really thin and aside from being VERY STURDY reminded me of washi. I used it on the edges of my box to give it strength. I love making something out of paper that is very durable. ;-)
And while I am letting you in on that little secret, here is another. I use staples because I have a melt down if things come apart. Just little itty bitty ones, but it ensures things stay together forever and ever. Since I used a TON of hardware on this box, I need all the help I can get! Also if you get all mixed media with paints, glitter glue and mists, it helps when things are a bit damp.
Check out those feet! They were purchased at The Funkie Junkie Botique along with the handle and latch. Love them! What I don't love about this photo is the dog foot...she was determined to be involved....bless her doggy heart...
Here is a top view of the box & the handle. Those flowers, leaves, and pink gems were all vintage stash...always fun to use something old on something new!
Now every one of Regina's boxes at THE CUTTING CAFE are designed for a purpose. This one is SUPPOSED to hold sticky notes which is a great idea unless of course you didn't buy any at the dollar store since you were way too excited about the four different kinds of metallic duct tape you found...you can check out her file here and see it's intended use.
One last photo minus the dog foot. She did eventually leave me in peace! Hope your Tuesday is awesome!
