This is my place to share my creative bits and pieces. My art has no rules, no limits and absolutely no order. My projects change with my moods but for the last few years, my main focus has been paper art. Cards, collage, mixed media and as many techniques as I can get to. My inspiration comes from everywhere.

I hope you enjoy your visit.

Recently, my friend Jutta posted this on her blog Crafty Gal Creations
I was immediately inspired to make one of my own. Her timing was perfect because I finally had a few rolls of tape that needed easy access storage. I began with a waxed paper dispenser box, removed the core tube and opened out the box so it laid flat.
Then I chose some gelli print papers, stamped on them using Quietfire Design and Magenta stamps (all Canadian content), and proceeded to glue it all down.
Then I put the box back together, and made a title (label) for the front of it.

I love how it turned out and I'm so glad Jutta shared her idea.

I added a strip of clear plastic (recycled from other packaging) and attached it to the front of the box so the tape will release easily. A couple covered elastics slip over the ends to keep the flap closed when I'm not using it.
I've also made my own designer tape and this type of storage would work for it as well. The long strips would lay the length of the box. I guess I know what will be next on my work table. :)
Thanks Jutta!
And thank you for stopping by!
