I've been keeping my stickers and stamps in this box for about 5 years, but it was this old orange box with purple flowers, not really my style. So finally, I got around to making it pretty! First, I covered it in Chinese newspaper from the people I used to work with. I cover the inside and out, even though I didn't decorate the inside. Next, I added a brown ribbon to hold it together. The horizontal ribbon snaps on to the vertical ribbon by a clothing snap I sewed on. After that, I just had loads of fun decorating! I added a playing card, a couple of dominoes, pieces of cardboard, foam letters on the side and some cool scrap pictures I had saved. Now I have a scrapbook box that makes as happy as the things inside!
