I have found the perfect storage for my square collages! I love this wooden box, painted gray, that now resides on my desk. At the back it holds blank, unused cardstock and then finished collages, in order of appearance from the start of my 365 project! All within handy reach!
Square collages you ask? Well, you know part of the 365 collages in 2013 project – check it out.
What dimensions are the squares and what kind of paper are you using?? You inspire me SO MUCH!!!
Thanks Lynn, so glad I inspire you! :-)
My collages are about 12 x 12 cm, which is 4.7″ x 4.7″. Sometimes I use watercolour paper as canvas, but right now I’m using cut up cardstock, recycled from printed posters that I didn’t want to keep. Anything that is sturdy enough goes.
Also what size box & where did you get it. Thanks
Mary, I got the box in a shop in Stockholm called Granit. The box is about 12×20 centimeter I guess. Perfect for my collage size this year! :-)
That looks perfect! I have a thing for boxes…and that wooden one is especially nice :)
Love it when it all comes to gether so easily !
Happy Creating !
Your storage looks so pretty – mine on the other hand is just a random box, undecorated at this point because I don’t know if it’s going to be big enough to hold all 365. I can see the advantage of using only one size is that the storage is easy and the whole stack is attractive. My random sizes and shapes offer lots of variety, but aren’t nearly as pretty to look at. Plus, I occasionally send out a collage as mail art so I’ve started adding a slip of paper to remind me of that. I’m so glad you came up with this idea – I’m having a blast!
That is a perfect box. Just looking at it is inspiring me to pick up my scissors and miscellaneous paper goodies. I love little peeks into other people’s worlds. Thanks for sharing.
How satisfying to be able to look over at your collage box and see all of your progress!
