You might remember the gift I sent to my friend Sanda for Christmas.
I thought Sanda needs a container to keep all these together and because I couldn’t find any beautiful tin for this purpose, I had to be creative and make my own tin.
And because working with metal still has secrets for me (some day I will have to learn how to work with that wonderful Mod Podge), I had to work with fabrics.
So I made these 6 triangular boxes.
And one large hexagonal box to keep them all together.
Here is! Sanda loved it.
Then, I couldn’t stop. And I made these…
for my sister Nina,
to match her quilt.
Then I made these, for my niece. I was lucky that I had polka dots in the perfect size.
A 25 year old girl has a lot of treasures to keep there.
I worked hard ( read: pure coincidence!) so that I can arrange the boxes around the center box in this way…
or in this way…
Then I made these for a little girl…
And so a new passion/obsession for boxes was born.
I apologize I show you empty boxes. But I don’t feel any pressure to fill them. This is the recipient’s job! But such a fun job!
