Teacher Box

I couldn't wait to get my School is Cool paper from Nikki Sivils, love the bright happy colors in it!  For my first project with it, I altered a wooden box.  This will be used to hold pencils and such on my desk.  I picked up this box for a quarter at a garage sale, painted it then just covered it with paper, some of the die cuts and stickers in the pack and tied it all off with some twine.  This is for the Raise the Bar challenge -back to school, Crazy 4 Challenges challenge - for teacher and for Papertake Weekly - anything goes.


It is also for the Paper Players challenge:
