DT CCB Upcycling - Two become One

Welcome!

Today a new upcycling project, it's a storage box for all my Spray Mist's from Tattered Angels.
My last upcycling project was a storage for washi tapes and now I was on search for a suitable box.
This box is at the same time a storage case, a home decoration project and an inspiration thing, because I added a little extra box for a pencil and leaflet, where I note ideas and flashes of genius.
So I decided to use two old crake boxes - two becomes one! 


 

used materials from Tattered Angels
and other companies
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Chocolate Brown
 Tattered Angels Baseboard Lava
7 gypsies Architextures Paper Junk'n
7 gypsies Architextures Paper Market signs
7 gypsies Ordre du jour Seize the day Paper
Canvas corp paper brushes on ivory
Canvas corp Black & Craft French Linen Stripe
2 Fruit crates
Tim Holtz Vintage Portraits
Americana Decor Creme Wax Brown
Burlap leftovers
7gypsies Loops & Hooks
die - gears
black textured paper 
wood and decoupage glue

Scissors, pincer,
Cuttlebug as cutting machine


one crate remains unchanged,
while you need from the other only 
a short and two long side pieces
see Abb.



remove brackets with a pincer

glue the short piece (1) as an attachment on the upper side 
 and the 2 long pieces (2+3) on the front side 

 
sometimes is nessary to use a rasp, then the surfaces will be better glue together



Tip: allow to dry overnight, because wood glue needed a longer drying time for a stable connection


 Darken the wooden crate with brown wax, 
I added spray and splatters for a more time-worn effect


 measure and cut backside


cut out your chosen motive and glue it with some other embellishments
 (burlap, old photo cutouts, industrious stickers)
 on the front side and on the upper attachment





 for my little idea box I used a small matchbox and a paper cutout, 
this paper is really great, because it looks like an original box handle


 glue it on the front side



I added also some punched gears, an old photo cutout and  a metal saying
Finished :-)


Happy crafting!
