So apparently Tim Holtz has this amazing antique fold-out box in which he keeps his “accoutrements” for travel. We Tim fans ooohed and ahhhhed when he brought it out during a video demo, and it has been dubbed his “box of goodness.”
Naturally, I HAD to have one. I couldn’t find one exactly like Tim’s, but the next best thing was a vintage wooden sewing box I found on Ebay. It works in the same manner as Tim’s, but lacks the sides that fold up. (The sides don’t really add any storage; they just look cool.) Not quite the same, but good enough for me. (I love Ebay!)
In the great Tim tradition, I couldn’t just leave it plain! I made a special trip to the scrapbook store, where I found paper with a vintage bird design and two 7 Gypsies glass knobs in a wonderful green that really sets off the colors in the paper. I added black velvet and satiny multi-colored fibers to finish off the edges.
All that’s left to do is fill it with Tim goodness! 🙂
