A number of years ago a wine box arrived in our house with three very nice bottles of wine, being the " oh that would make.........someday " sort of person I squirreled it away in the garage. Due to putting the house on the market there have been numerous episodes of sorting and tidying , and just like the average soap opera have different levels of excitement , indifference and occasional murders .
"Well where are you going with this I hear you scream at me"
Hang on I am getting there. One of these tidy ups involved me saying yes everything in the garage can go I trust you.
Imagine my horror when I went out to see how work was progressing and saw the wine box on the tip run pile. I immediately gathered it in my arms like a lost child and said I promise not to remove anything else .
These two products were great
I really had a tough job lining the base . I nearly gave up and
even considered blackboard painting the base.
To do the lining I actually got the size I needed and hemmed all four sides I used red as there is red in the notice board fabric.
I decided the glue would not be enough to hold fabric up the sides so stapled them, only trouble with that brainwave was that the staples came through the sides , now have to think about what to do with the protruding staples.
So far I am pleased with the outcome, I am more than confident that there are crafters out there that would do this a lot neater ,but I am happy with it so far. I have added to picture hooks but they do not do the job I wanted so need to rethink. I also put string accross board to stop flapping of notes ect.
I want to put a ribbon around the bottom where the staples are just to pretty it up .
So as you can probably see I have a number of things fitted in here. I have used the two halves of an Iphone box as storage. There is a stack of pots with paper clips Another pot has chalk and the third one my ear phones, I plan to store phone cable as I am always losing it.
The Blackjack tin has bluetack and ither bits and bobs in. Under the address book is my cardmaking tin, I have sold the majority of my card making kit but kwpt just a few bits . There is glue and screen ipes along with a stapler. I bought a 3 for 2 offer on Pens note block and a card index on a ring. I had hoped to hang this but thad did not work out.
I have also put in tissues well you never know when they might be needed.
So that is the tour I will be adding bits and pieces along the way for now I need to organise what I have and fix them down.
I would really value your opinions and further ideas please
