Colourful Box for Markers

While away on our weekend at East Park recently I decorated another box. This time it was for my Tim Holtz Distress Markers, and I used JOFY stamps from Paper Artsy and my Tim Holtz Distress Markers themselves. The beauty of being away together meant we could share one-another's stamps, and so thanks to Linda I had plenty of JOFY stamps to use!! (Thanks Linda x).

I used another Molton Brown Box and this one had a magnetic flip opening lid. The box is very strong, so ideal for transporting the pens about to crops. I laid the box on it's side so I can store the pens horizontally as I believe this is the best way to store these double-ended pens.

I labelled the lid so that it would indicate where the opening is as there are no tabs or catches.

I will list the stamps and other items used at the bottom of the post.

Using borders from different sets I decorated pre-cut pieces (made to measure) of water-colour paper using the pens, water and a paintbrush.

The letters and numbers were also JOFY stamps, and I added a lot of her images too. I drew my own pens and brushes. 

This end doesn't open!

I also used some Doodlebug Designs alphabet stamps, which I have owned for many years and are very useful.

A5 Set 21 alphabet & flags
A5 Set 22 arrows
A5 Set 34 diamond border
A5 Set 35 circular border
A5 Set 36 chevron border
A5 Set 37 Bobbly border
A5 Set 42 Leaves and bloom border
Mini Set 20 Love Birds

Thanks for looking
