  • Free box project... step 2

    Hi everyone,

    firstly may I say a big thanks to you all for the overwhelming interest in my box project. I am really excited about it and I am sure you will all produce fantastic looking boxes in many different designs.

    If you missed the original post and would like to get involved you can see it here..

    http://www.craftsforum.co.uk/showthr...ighlight=boxes


    Ok, so here is step 2!!

    I have the boxes here ready to go. I have 12 different styles. They are all rectangle shaped and each box is approximately 5 inches by 2-3 inches., there or thereabouts! A great size to make lovely keepsake or jewellery boxes etc...

    Here's what we need to do for the next step.

    1. I need your full name and postal address to send your box out to you. (including any web links etc.. you want me to use when we show off your work!). I could PM you all, but it would take too long. So if you could PM me with your details that'd be great.

    Also I don't want this to take you any more time than needed but if you can inlcude a couple of lines about yourself, e.g. your crafting spe******t area or interest etc... Many of you have a little blurb on your websites that will be perfect. It'll help me later when I am showing off your work if I can include a few details. Just a couple of lines is fine!

    2. When I get your details I will send your box to you that you can decorate in any style you wish.

    3. I will also include a sheet for you that explains how to document your 'how I made my box' instructions and what to do with photos that you take etc.. once you have finished decorating your box. (Remember the idea is that you each show off your craft skills/interests by giving a step by step guide to how you created your fab decorated box).

    4. When your box is finished... you can keep it! That's your reward for contributing to the project. All I need back from you are your instructions and photos.

    5. I will give more details on the next steps soon. Basically I will use the box making guides and photos to include in our newsletter, and in our new blog we are building. I will credit your work whenever it is used and include links to any sites/blogs etc.. that you give me. I will also show them off here in the forum so we can all see the wonderful creative ideas you have all come up with!

    6. The objective of the project is, of course, to have some fun making the boxes but also help promote our crafting creativity to others who will visit your websites etc.. and look at more of your work.

    As soon as I get your details I will post out your box.

    Again many thanks to you all for getting involved in this project. I know it will be a success and we can all help promote our crafts together.

          Hi, yep I will send out details with each box. But, yes, stage photos are exactly what I would like, that is my goal! The idea is to show each important step in the proces so that someone could follow the creation of the box you have decorated.

          Hope that makes sense.

          Yep I am excited too, can't wait to see what you all come up with, it's going to be brill!!

                            I'll be at work too actually, that's a good point.

                            Hmm...

                            Might have to abduct a postman then.

                              Yeah, or they might attempt to cram it through your letter box!
