Everyone can be Crafty

materials
Honestly, anyone can craft. I created a few boxes from templates I downloaded from Mirkwood Designs, they were free, and there are a lot of other templates there you might be interested in.

I decided to create them using ordinary easily found objects. I cut with my daughter’s child scissors. In order to create folds, some lines needed to be creased. I did so by tracing over the lines on the template with a ballpoint pen on top of the decorative (scrapbooking paper) paper to create an indent. If I couldn’t draw a straight line, I used my TV remote to help guide me. Then I used a little glue stick as needed to seal the flaps. Oh, and just a suggestion, If you find it hard to keep the template in place when you are cutting, a few clothespins can be used to keep everything in place.

So with little to no crafting supplies, you can create something crafty! Give it a try.

Hi, Jane -- I love what you've done with my humble templates! And using the scraps to make beads is genius!
