I really love chocolate and of course brownies!!! In my last trip to France I bought a box of Brownies and I was sad to see it empty (too soon) Wink so I decided to make something to reuse it...

I laminated the box with adhesive plastic and hand sewed everything....

There is place for some notes, or the train ticket and the driving license...but I think is too deep for coins.

Really cool!  Cheesy I am fascinated to know your process of how you laminated the box with adhesive plastic - where do you find the adhesive plastic and is it only meant for paper or could you use on fabric?

What do I think? I think I am going to have to go bake something!

I like the dimensions of this. I would use it to organize receipts.

That's really cute!  Very nice hand stitching~ Cheesy

I know you can buy laminate sheets in the paper supply-type stores.  I remember buying a package of maybe a few sheets from either Office Max or Staples, I think.

here's an example of what I mean, but this is a roll of it:

Thank you very much for your comments!!!

The plastic I used is the same used to protect scholar books... (something like this).

In Spain is very common and you can find it in the stationary store and the "1 euro shop" although is better to pay a little more to get much more protection/sturdiness. It is sold in 4 and 10 meters roll. I think it is not ok for fabric, just for paper, boxes etc..

Wow, it never ceases to amaze me how constructive and creative some people can be... and patient.  I never have the patience to sit down and finish a project that requires REAL work.  Smiley

There is actually an iron on vinyl out there that is for fabric though which does basically the same thing, only to fabric, just do a google search Smiley

What a good idea and it looks very well done.
I get inspired by this.  Roll Eyes
I love to collect memories from trips but it only ends up in a box. (Examples: Postcards, leafs, recipes, sugarbags, teabag covers and more.) This is a fabulous way to do something useful from it.
