Letterbox

I mentioned earlier that I was planning to decorate one of these letterboxes. Today I finally started. My idea was to fill all of them with fabric. I haven't glued them all down yet, but I was already so pleased with what it looks like, it was time for a little break. Now to fill all these. I'm sure some Lego will end up in there, and idea I took from Molly. But not just Lego, other things too. It will be fun looking for trinkets to put in here

Love this Shin. Must have taken ages to measure and cut out all those squares. I have a ton of little wooden boxes with compartments like this that I have been hoarding for years and had no idea what to do with them. Now I know!

Thanks Bonnie! Yes it is fun to play with them isn't it!
Thanks Jill, yes it was quite some work to measure and cut, but so worth the work. Now the fun part of filling them starts :)

was wondering
if you have ever used
any of that
"photo transfer cloth
or

it is so costly
i thought i would ask around before
buying some ...

thanks
ever-so-much !!

Dearest Bonnie, do you mean those printable inkjet sheets? I do have them and use them a lot. I'm not sure if that is the same you mean with the photo transfer paper for cloth?

It looks really nice Shin! I do like your choice placement of fabric. At first I thought it was paper. What are you using to adhere the fabric?

Hugs!

Thanks Constance. I have this material called Gudy V. It's a large roll of double sided tape which still stems from the time I used to work in textiles. It is perfect for fabric. I had some fabric adhered to this from another project and used mostly that. For all the other bits I just used Elmer's School Glue :)
