Embellishment storage from trash

Needing something to store tiny ephemera in, I made a chest of drawers from the boxes that our single serve dog food comes in.

The twelve pack cartons have two six pack cartons inside, and each of these has a drawer that slides out which the little tins sit in.

Glued two small cartons inside a large one, and put two drawers in each side. Glued two drawers side by side on the top.

Under the whole thing, I glued a flat box with a plastic tray that held tiny jam tarts in it for small flower cut outs.

I have had many careers in my 70+ years, but always creativity was at the forefront. I am passionate about using less and wasting less. I love design, painting, decorating, and now I am combining all that into making junk journals. Creating is like breathing for me!
