Play date with Marcella


Marcella emailed with a link to this woman's website:



She asked if I was interested in trying to make some paper boxes and of course I said, "Let's do it"


Here is the "in- process" mess with Marcella on the right.. I used some paste paper from a previous play date and she used heavy mulberry paper. I finished the lid but was only was able to finish sewing one side seam on the box itself. I also later replaced the Tyvec bead on top with a cool button.


Marcella said she was NOT leaving until she finished the box because she had way too many half finished projects at home. I LOVE her box and the shape. Here are details of the sides.








Great suggestion Marcella and I had such a great time visiting with you as well.

  1. Nice boxes! But what caught my attention was your tyvek bead... haven't thought about tyvek in awhile, and now I want to try playing with it again. Trouble is, where to find any? I remember cutting up a mailing envelope to play with when I was experimenting, but the P.O. no longer has any that I have seen. Any ideas for sources?

    2. I tried Construction Tyvek and it worked but was coarse. Kind of unsatisfactory but I have been know to take a few envelopes home from the post office
