My art box....

I have a old pencil box that one of the girls used at school just hanging around the house.  I put my art stuff in it like colored pencils and charcoal pencils. 

I thought this would be the project for Craftster... how fitting a art   box to decorate with paper..   

First I ripped up pieces of pastel computer paper.  I then glued them to the box with mod podge.  I added some darker blue tissue paper for a little pop here and there.    I then added some paper dollies that I cut the center out of and put on the ends of the box.

I made a pink flower with heart shapes. 
I started quilling some paper.  I did see a quilling butterfly on pinterest but mine didn't work out right.   so I just used a picture from a magazine and a sticker.  But I like the curly things when I saw them by my flower thought cool thats what I will do,  Don't love it when the disorganizing of just having things lay around on the table produce a cool design???

this is my art box to create <3

A great book. I really like the bit you used on the spine  Smiley

The smallest one in the drill case... LOL I have a rechargeable drill in a nice case and about 5 drill bits in the case I just used my smallest

Oh wow that's awesome. I love all the stones and bits on it. I have to ask though, what is a smash book?

A smash book is a scrap book that you smash stuff into like you would a junk drawer! LOL.  I love the name...

I started with this collection of things. rocks, paper and more...

I tea dyed the paper and it really didn't turn out as good as I thought it would. but I added some pretty baby blue paper I have had forever... I spray painted a bunch of things silver and gold..... The white cardboard I sprayed gold and when it dried I sponged stained black to give in that antique look.  I made paper beads.  I glued them with the crystal points in the corners.

I sewed the leather to be a little loose.  This is a smash book but I have smashed much it to it yet...

My first craft challenge so what you think?

I'm confused. I looked at the tutorial... is there any way to do this without a serger? I have a Husqvarna Viking Emerald 118 Standard Sewing Machine if that helps...
I tried once with my crappy Brother sewing machine using the zig zag stitch with a rolled hem foot .. didn't work so well. But i think it depends on your sewing skills. I'm not v good at sewing jersey material. Tongue

But I think you can do without a serger. I would try using a bias tape to seal in the raw edgings. It may work! no guarantees though  Tongue

I don't think you need to do anything to the edge, cause a t-shirt material doesn't unravel.. just cut straight... Ok I have problems cutting straight... Or you can do a zig zag stitch in a different color for contrast.

I have a extra large long sleeved damaged tee I got at the store for 50 cents I just might try this to make pretty new top...

I've got quite a few cute shirts that are too small in the neck and arms so I may have to have a go at this.

I'm assume you just cut along the top seam, sew ribbon to the edge, add grommets (always the part that's the most pain in the butt) and then lace it up?

Oh yea I cut the seam and then I sewed the grommet ribbon.
I got the grommet ribbon at Jo Anne's with a 40% off coupon. It's around 5.99 a yard I think.
I used t-shirt yarn for the lace part!

My daughter loves her dogs.  She needed a bag for her stuff for work.  So she  asked me to make her one with the material that I made another  gift for her out off.  I didn't have more material but found some almost like it.  Two different patterns I knew she would like so I got both.  Then I made a reversible bag out them!!! 

The finished project!

There is the paw prints

and the bones side
the best thing is I cut the strap from a t-shirt so it one continuous piece
