Sometimes it's the Box.

You know how little children and pets often enjoy the box the present came in more than the gift itself? I had a similar experience recently, though the contents (natural wool roving from Sheep Shed Studio) were mighty wonderful as well.

You'll see why I loved the box in a moment; first, the gory details.
I decided to make a portfolio for my artwork.
Below: The interior.
Now, who could toss away all of those beautiful stamps? These people must have a great sense of humor, and I love how hands-on the effect is! I simply cut the box and laminated it with packing tape, taped up the edges and a few key seams, inserted a grosgrain ribbon and VOILA!
It's even personalized! Thank you, Sheep Shed Studio! (I'll post pictures of the yarn I'm spinning and the scarf I'm making when they're finished!)
