Fabric box

 

The box can stand by itself - I used Decovil (it is something like Peltex)

with one sticky side - and appliqued all sorts of things out of my stash - you can see inchies

and leaves - and I stamped again with an Indian woodden stamp

I started with a shape like that - all sides are the same measures - 15 cm

 

I did not like the shape at first (the photo is taken in the evening sun) -

it seemed to be too high so I undertook a surgery

and cut 2 cm off the rim

 

The proportions are more pleasing now

There is a pocket on one side for scissors or pencils
----
We had stormy weather while I was taking the pictures

The sun disappeared

And if you want to know where I got the idea from.....

  3. That is a very pleasing box. Nice material that is both soft and flexible, but at the same time, sturdy and keeps the shape.

  11. A lovely box with all the appliques and stamps. It does look better after you cut it shorter.

  12. Anneliese, it is great that you could use some of your inchies in such a creative way! The box is fabulous and will probably be very handy. I love the "Janeville' site too and adore looking at Jane's work, it is very inspirational.
