Packaging


I've been working on some packaging for all the brooches I intend to make ;) 

Now, with the laws of procrastination always in evidence around these parts I may very well end up with lots of boxes and no brooches, but hey, good intentions abound :)


The recycled cardboard boxes were a great find. 
I've printed up atomic blocks on linen and glued them to the lid.
Simple, but I think they're effective.

Hope you had a great weekend. What's on your agenda this week?

hey, that is a groovy re-styling for those boxes lades. i like what you've done, always inspiring me to amp it up. i would have never thought to glue a graphic element on but the results make it so much more special. bravo! the ideal brooch display indeed.

but i don't know about this procrastination thing, it seems to me you've got like a gazillion projects on the go at any one time so be easy on yourself. all in good time and especially when the refinement is so splendid, wouldn't want to rush an end result that looks so good. ♥
