How gorgeous is the box the Vagabond comes in? I could not bring myself to throw it away, so I have been working on a way to use it so it does not become a dust collector!
I saw Tim's new storage containers that came out this CHA and that inspired me to make my own until I can get my grubby paws on his ones.
So this is what I did:
First I cut off the two small flaps, then I measured the centre of the side of the box. I measured the lid which is 17cm and cut a slit 17cm down the centre of the sides of the box. This way the box can flap open and use the two lids as supports. Having cut the slit I then cut the perpendicular way from side to side of the box.
I opened the box and just scored the inside from side to side so it can bend.
I had to create a box to hold the flaps up and used foam core to do this. They measure 8cm high x 35.2cm long x 15.6cm short (x2 each) I taped these together and glued them to the flaps making sure that the handle has space to move on the outside.
I broke the foam packaging apart and used the long strips to separate my bottles in the bottom and the flat bits to create a lid so that when you shut the whole thing nothing moves around.
So now I have a mobile Tim Holtz studio! I still want to get two straps with buckles to wrap round the outside of the box for extra strength and security...
So what do you think?
