Wow, seems like forever since I've posted a project here! I have been busy, but can't share everything right now. I do have a fun and easy upcycle project for you today, though.
So, you know those little 4-packs of single serve wine bottles? I decided to turn one into a mini charging station for my kitchen island, just for my phone and camera. I can leave the cords right in it and pop the whole thing into the cupboard if I need it out of sight, but it looks pretty when it sits out. Here's what I did:
(Pardon the mess behind it - school has started an this is where the lunchboxes reside!) So, using the For The Record collection from Echo Park Paper, I just cut strips of the floral paper to fit around the box. I then cut pieces to size for the top, traced through the handle on the back side, and cut it out. I used my Crop-a-dile Big Bite to punch the holes, then enlarged them with the lid of my Flower Soft Glue bottle! I enjoy puns, so I used the phrase from the collection that says "It's down to the wire", and added typewriter key letters "D" and "C" (direct current, get it?). Yes, I know, I AM a dork! I topped all of the stickers with Liquid Glass for dimension and to protect them a little.
Here's the view of the inside. I cut out the divider on one side so my camera would fit better. OK, that's it for today, folks! I promise I'll be back soon with some more projects, as well as some sneak peeks of some classes I will be teaching at Michael's during September. Thanks for stopping by, and hope to see you back again soon!
