By The Sea Configuration Box

Hello everyone, It is Monday in my neck of the woods, which means it is time for me to share my Mad About Scrappin project.  This week I have taken a humble pizza box that I received a recent design kit in and transformed it into an upcycled confuguration box.

I started out with all of this .......

then narrowed it down to just this......


I then used these strips to reinforce and strengthen the sides of the box (pictured below)

I cut some "shelving" from some extra thick corrugated cardboard....


and then interlocked them like this.....


Once I had all this done, I decided to cover it all with black card stock instead of painting.  I felt that the card stock would give a more finished surface to the corrugated card board.


I then gathered my supplies. Shells from our time on the South Coast....some drift wood, a piece of sea sponge and last but not least some sand filled little bottles...{yes, I even brought home some beach sand lol ;)}... I will let the pics do the rest of the talking for me, as they speak so much better than I can!!  .....










 
Well that's my Monday Mad About Scrappin share for this week.  A bit of a longer post this week ;)  ♥ ♥ ♥ Thanks for stopping by......

Please be sure to check out all the Mad About Scrappin links below!!  




.....till next time

  4. Oh Kimi, you really have surpassed yourself with this amazing piece! It is absolutely beautiful & you are so clever when it comes to doing something from scratch! I have thought about doing a shadow box from start-to-finish, just haven't got around to it yet (ummm, how often do you see me say that? Lol). This definitely inspires me to try although it won't be nearly as professional looking as yours. Your attn to detail, all the beautiful pieces - just sublime! C :))
