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!)


  1. That is pricless! What a great idea.

  2. Thanks, Q! Glad to see you're still kicking!
