Found this VHS box at Goodwill. My husband's brother's girlfriend's daughter loves to draw! I decided to make her her own drawing case fit for a young artist! I love it and am a bit jealous  Tongue

I basically just stripped it to the basics and rebuilt it. My sewing machine didn't really enjoy the cardboard, thus resulting in sub-par stitches, but she's 8 and probably won't care. Hope you enjoy it!

Omg, totally love it. Seriously, this is why I love this group. we improvise so well and recreate something special from something old, that eventually might have landed in a landfill. I know she will love it!

This is great! I love that you personalized it, too. What young budding artist wouldn't appreciate such a great supply case?
