Got Worries, Dreams or Wishes.…

Apr 23, 2008

At the moment, I seem to have all of the above so I cre­ated this lit­tle box mainly to keep my hands busy and to place the above men­tioned in to let them fall as they may. I have a wish/dream that is so close to com­ing true it causes me great worry but in the end if all goes well it will be incred­i­ble to have reached a goal I have had for the past few years. If it doesn’t hap­pen well I am not giv­ing up and will go to plan B.

A little place to store those not so little worries, dreams and wishes.

Here is a lit­tle tuto­r­ial on recre­at­ing this lit­tle box in case you have a few wor­ries, dreams or wishes you need to store away for awhile.

Sup­plies:
Small Match­box (2″ x 1.5″ x .5″)
2 — Pat­terned Papers or 1 — Dou­ble Sided
Seam Bind­ing
Flow­ers
Jew­el­ers Tag

Tools:
Martha Stew­art Star­burst Punch
Col­or­Box Fluid Chalk Ink (Chest­nut Roan)
Strong Adhesive

Instruc­tions:

  1. Cut a strip of Pat­terned Paper to 2″ x 4.5″, ink edges using Chest­nut Roan Fluid Chalk Ink
  2. Wrap strip of Pat­terned Paper around Match Box and adhere using a Strong Adhesive
  3. Ink outer edges and the sides of drawer por­tion of the Match Box using Chest­nut Roan Fluid Chalk Ink
  4. Using the Star­burst Punch, punch out Star­burst from Pat­terned Paper and adhere to center/left top por­tion of the Match Box
  5. Wrap Seam Bind­ing around the Match Box and tie a bow
  6. Place a small bunch of Vin­tage Flow­ers under bow
  7. Tie Jew­el­ers Tag to cen­ter of Bow
  8. Open Match Box and fill with your wor­ries, dreams and wishes

Wish Often, Dream Big and Worry Less

    Lisa,

    I visit your blog fre­quently to see all of the beau­ti­ful things you cre­ate, but never leave a com­ment. Isn’t that silly? I feel com­pelled to leave one this time to let you know that I hope your wish comes true! You’re incred­i­bly tal­ented, and I think there are no lim­its to where that can take you!

I know this is some­thing you’ve had in the works for awhile and I know it will be fab­u­lous! I can’t wait to see it and get my hands on it– so deserved!
