The second challenge at LESS-ology is to make a trinket box, and of course you must upcycle at least one item. So many choices! I chose a box of tea.
The first thing I did was to re-inforce all the edges with tape, the type that picture framers use. This also hides all the multi-coloured corners.
Then each panel of the box was covered with paper, the edges inked with a little Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.
Chester has been coloured with Copic pens. I had a little mishap that turned out quite fortuitously. When I uncapped one of my markers three blobs of ink flew onto the paper, so I had to cut away the background. This turned out quite well though I thought.
This box is now proudly being displayed in my son's room who is using it to store his Nintendo DS games.
