Hello, SRM fans! Shery here today I'm sharing an art supply holder/container I made with the Kraft Box (3x3x2) and the super fun chalk markers!
I'm always on the lookout for things I can alter and the SRM kraft boxes are perfect not just as gift holders (of course!) but as storage and containers. These kraft boxes come in a variety of sizes and I thought they're awesome as art supply holders for you know...markers, brushes, pens, small embellishments, and even small scraps of paper I wouldn't want to throw away just yet. Here's one I made from the 3x3x2 kraft box -- it's the perfect size for my Gelatos and I can keep them upright, which allows me to easily pick the colors I want to use! I was keeping them horizontally in a little plastic drawer and it was a pain to dig through.
I cut the top flap of the box and then covered the entire outside with the Easy Chalkboard Marker. I have to tell you...I am in love with this chalkboard marker! After the paint dried and cured -- quite a wait but I busied myself by working on two other kraft boxes to hold my watercolor brush markers and embossing powders -- I decorated all 4 sides of the box using the Bistro Chalk White Marker and Bistro Chalk Marker Fluorescent.
I stenciled some stars and then doodled in the swirls and lines.
On the other side, I stenciled the butterflies and doodled some more.
And on the front I wrote the name of the contents of the box and doodled some more. So much fun!
Hope you enjoyed this project! Thanks for letting me share!
Now go get yourselves some of these chalk markers and kraft boxes and have yourself come crafty fun!
