Wanted to share my embossing folder storage box.
I created it to match the Altered Ink Box I did last year. I used an old metal card file box that I'd had in my stash for a while. In fact I had primed it gray intending to paint it as a recipe box. Here's what it looked like before I started:
The first thing I did was adhere the paper (Tim Holtz's Lost & Found Paper Stash) with matte medium to the sides and lid. I used Tim's tissue tape on the bottom's inside rim and the inner side of the top. I used Vintage Photo DI on the tape, inside the lid and the box edges to get a grungy look.
The feet are wooden candle cups that I colored using Vintage Photo Distress Stain. I attached them with Glossy Accents and I tell you...they are stuck on there! I used one of Tim's Ornate Plates, again attached with GA. I printed the label on cardstock that I distressed with VP.
The handle is a glass TH Curio Knob, attached with...you guessed it... Glossy Accents!!
The box holds my current collection of 32 folders with room for even more.
