Over the past weeks, I have been experimenting on making a box from cardboard (I think the French calls it 'cartonnage') for my buttons. The experiment was somewhat successful but with a few flaws in between which I hope to have rectify when I attempt my next box. The stitched piece is a freebie from the SAL Collection de pinkeeps 2009 organised by Maryse. I love the autumn colours she chose for the month of October which is my birth month. The box took me longer than I had anticipated but I am pretty much okay with it. Will show more in my next post!
