1  Boxes can be housewares right? in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Hustlerose on: July 31, 2005 01:53:06 PM
I think this counts as housewares but someone can move it if I am wrong.

So like a couple years ago i bought the standard wooden boxes from ikea (now im wishing i had taken a before picture but i'm sure everyone knows what i am talking about.) and left them plain and full of junk until recently, when i decided to paint them.  lacking painting skills, i thought it would be more fun to weave ribbons on the front and here is the result:


i finished the outside edges but running black ribbon all around it:


and the inside is a little messy but it looks like this:

sorry about the blurry pictures.

basically, i glued strips or the colored ribbon on one edge of the box and the white ribbon along the bottom of the box. the colored ribbon was wider so i put the strips right next to each other but the white ribbon was thinner so i spaced them out. then i wove them together and glued them down on the other sides of the box (all the colored ones first, then the white ones and then i went back and re-glued any of the ribbons that came loose or needed to be adjusted). then i glued the black ribbon all the way around, cut of any ribbon that went past the black ribbon and glued black ribbon to the front of it because i didn't really like how the plain wood was showing on the front.

If i had done it all at once it wouldnt have taken that long (the longest part is weaving the ribbons together) but i kind of spread it out over a number of weeks. 

tell me what you think!
