I bought wooden craft boxes from Dollarama. I painted them white with acrylic paint that I also bought from there. Each box was two dollars and I bought 6 of them and the paint for a total of $13.00. I glued them together with the hot glue gun. It is much better than the styrofoam boxes like I had before.
I started drawing with watercolour medium and I wanted a neat way to store my artwork without having to go buy special art inserts or binder. I am not making a portfolio here. I am just doing so I won’t have my art all over the place.
I wanted to use my collection of glass beads and a coaster for my desk. I love handmade things on my desk and I wanted to add to my repertoire of creative things. So I had burlap sheets and lots of cardboard pieces. I hope you like it. I am not creative with patterns and it was difficult to make sure they stay in their place on the simple design. I added a brown ribbon at the end to cover the edges. I think it looks great and clean.
