I only collect a few things.. the #2, vintage frogs, vintage scissors, and cigar boxes… all of these items can be found in my studio.
I think the best way to display a boring old cigar box is to decorate it to match your room. I took one of my boxes and did just that. I used 3 of the mixed media banner shapes from Linnie Blooms. I just painted all 3 of them pink. I like how they added the texture that I needed for my box full of other crafty goodies. I used a page from a Genuinely Jane Studios Banner book for the large banner shape on the cigar box, along with a few fun items from Amy Tangerine, Dear Lizzy, and my favorite Martha Stewart butterfly punch. These are basically the colors on one side of my studio.. I love the soft colors near my desk and office area.. I have bright, fun, and cheery colors in my painting area of the studio.
What items do you collect in your craft room? Do you decorate them too or just display them?
If you want a set of the mixed media canvas banners to play with you can get them at the Linnie Blooms shop.
Have a great weekend~
