My niece Becca is in her second year of college. She is intelligent, beautiful, fun, and tells me I'm a good cook so I officially want to adopt her! (Sorry Candice--I need some girls!)
Last week I made her a creativity box. She was complaining that she didn't have any art supplies at college to be creative with and I told her I'd make her something.
This KIT has a little of everything in it: some stuff for painting, drawing, journaling, collage, sewing....
To make a creativity box, just glue book paper to a cigar box and paint it (I used acrylics). I was inspired by a technique I saw on Pam Garrison's blog that she uses to make her journals. I also used some washi tape on the edges so the paper wouldn't come up, but you could also seal it with decoupage glue.
Inside, glue papers to the top and bottom of the box.
DId you notice I used Julie's idea for making a little sewing kit out of an altoid's box? I also made her a sketchbook out of a manila envelope. Make sure you fill it with lots of fun, creative things!
What does your creativity box look like? We'd love to see!
