Hi Roadies!! Hope you have enjoyed all the fun projects the team has created for you since the last time I posted. And just in case you didn't know, there is a promotion for the fun wood products that Maya Road has going on over at the website. So, I thought this was a perfect time to share my Library Card box I did for Creavation in January. Wood is one of my favorite things to alter, so I knew I was going to have fun with this!
The best thing about these Library Card Boxes is that you can create and embellish as much or as little as you want! You can add as many tags or add fewer tags, it's all up to you and what you feel like creating at the time!
One thing I like to do with wood to prep it, is cover with a white paint in a couple of thin coats, letting each coat dry in-between. I happened to use white chalk paint this time. I then lightly washed a shimmery pink over the entire box, just to give it a fun feel. I started to add polka dots, but I was scared that would take it too far!
While my box was drying, I started working on tags for it. I cut them slightly smaller than the inside dimensions of the box. This will allow you to stack, stand and flip thru them easily. I just created tags out of pattern paper, since I didn't have any shipping tags on hand. I printed and cut a few pictures to fit the tags, but left room for me to embellish those tags with the pictures also.
I am going to be honest, I spent a lot of time picking out embellishments. Not because I was being a perfectionist, but because it was so fun to see how cute I could make the tags, yet make all of them different. I will have a list of all the fun Maya Road supplies I used at the end of my post.
And here is a little more about the promotion going on right now on the website. And it's a new site that is bright, clean and easy to shop on! New items are being added all the time, so be sure to stop by often!
Thanks for stopping by the Maya Road blog today. Create something beautiful and share with us on Facebook and Instagram. We would love to see your projects!
