Today I’ve finally finished on a project I started about a year ago! Before this glue-it-on make-over, these were plain looking cardboard boxes from Ikea. They’re very useful, but quite boring.

Erg handig in het gebruik, maar best wel saai.
Dus ik ben gaan zitten met een hele berg tijdschriften en heb alles eruit gehaald wat ik leuk vond èn blauw of groen was. Vervolgens heb ik alles op de dozen gelijmd en dit is het resultaat.

Vind jij het ook zo leuk om tijdschriften door te bladeren, plaatjes te zoeken en er collages mee te maken?
