Box of “Nic-Nacs”

by Crystal on February 28, 2011

I love little “Nic-Nacs” or “trinkets”, so when it came to putting together this box I had a lot of fun with it.  It took a while for the ideas to flow, and when I say a while, I’m talking almost 2 weeks!  I just wasn’t feelin’ it.  It was originally going to be  V-Day décor, but that day quickly came and went and I knew that if I started it as a Valentines décor it wouldn’t be done till next year and I didn’t need another unfinished project to add to my basket.   I decided that it would be cool as an all year decoration.

I started out with a Tim Holtz configuration box and then began doing the tedious job of cutting scraps of paper for the insides of all the little boxes. On the outside I used Tim Holtz tissue tape. I think it gives it a cool look. After a few hours, some random embellishments, and a few pictures a piece of art was made!  I am excited to display this on my shelf.  I love having handmade items in my home, they make my home cozy!

Thanks for taking a peek!

I love this. What a neat idea. Where did you find the amazing feet for it to stand on? They are beautiful.

I stopped by from Get Your Craft On at TCB.
