I love all kinds of fiber. So, its just natural I would be drawn to paper. I have been following Wendy's blog Threadborne at On her website she features beautiful fabrics and papers that she dyes with plants ala India Flint. One day she featured boxes she and her husband made at a workshop. I fell in love. I ordered the supplies and away I went.

These are my first two. These are 4"x4"x3". They are made from binder board, painted with acrylic paint, and papered with decorative paper. That's it in a nut shell. I added beads to the top as handles for these boxes. They were not complete until I distressed them with ink and paint. In the case of the pink box, I patted water on the ink and it bleeds to form a really cool texture.

Here is the lavender box.


Here is the pink box.
