Make it Masculine - out of old books!


Have you seen my gorgeous new blog!  Susie Jefferson of 1st Floor Flat is working miracles - she is a total ANGEL and is making the most superb job of it, to say I am delighted really is an understatement! Thank You Susie!!!  Go and take a look at her work - and if you are thinking of a blog makeover, then you
simply must visit Susie.

But I have been busy and have made this lovely little box for the challenge Make it Masculine over at Anything but cute blogspot,

It is actually made out of old book covers, the insert is mdf although
you could easily use a small deep picture frame - just experiment!

Plus if you like this - click on the new "Tutorials" page where I have uploaded a step by step tutorial for you!

Cathryn, I love your masculine box, and those awesome cogs, that actually look like they could start rolling at any moment! Great idea to use book covers (Heaven knows I have enough of those!)And your idea to layer them over your images is so cool and inventive! I will be back to check our the video, but for now thank you for joining our Make It Masculine challenge at Anything But Cute! Hugs! Sara Emily DT
