The ManFlesh has a few things he uses on the reg when he his editing printed-out drafts of manuscripts: copper pen with red ink, binder clips, and paper weights for when the weather is such that he can do it outside on the deck. So, I thought I'd give him a way to corral that that stuff together!



I used a vintage cigar box that I have had in my stash, probably for nearly two decades. I added a padded velvet bottom and velvet covered dividers - in his favorite color. They're 3/16" craft plywood held in place with brass channel, so they can be pulled out.



Because the pen and paperweights were previous gifts, I made quick labels with letter stamps to mark their spots. The decoupaged binder clips are part of this gift.  Wink



The outside shows a little "patina" from it's years which I like, but I gave it a fresh coat of oil just to freshen and protect it.

Oh, that's such a pretty box. How awesome that you could give it a new life as an organizational tool. And I love that you've dressed up some plain binder clips with literary-themed paper. I've been reading Marie Kondo and I have fallen in love with the idea of everything having its own proper place.

Thanks, friends! I hope he likes it so much that he uses it faithfully... to diminish some of the dining room clutter. That's where most of the writing magic happens!

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.
