Creativity Box

I have had this stack of Tim Holtz things stored under my desk since January. I knew the general idea of what I wanted to do, but then again I didn't know what I was going to do with it. When I finally took the time to read each inscription on these little medal plates, I knew for sure what I needed to do with it!

I have a lot of little things in a basket that I use occasionally for crafting. So to bring a bit more organization as well as elegance to storing the little things, I decided to make a storage box using SVG Attic's 'Cookie's for Santa' file to make this project.

I had to modify the file slightly to achieve what I wanted.

Original file: 

For the lid of the box, I wanted the top to be a solid surface. So I simply right clicked on the top of the lid, selected 'release compound', and discarded the items from the file I didn't want to use.

Modified file: 

Once modified and cut out, I was able to put each piece together.
 But once I added all of the Tim Holtz bling, wow!
 The gold glitter paper I used from Cut Card Stock was the icing on the cake.
 The gold paired well with the elegance and old fashioned paper
 I chose this file because I liked that I can take the inside compartments out one at a time for when I am using that element.
The finished results came out well.

  1. This box is gorgeous! All of the Tim Holtz metal findings you used on it make it even more awesome. Love it!
