National Craft Month DAY 24

I pre-ordered 2 of the new Nestabilities new releases from 7KidsCollegeFund a few weeks ago.  I already have Nestabilities Labesl 1 and 2.  And today, my Nestabilities Labels 3 and 4 arrived.  That made me decide to upgrade my Nestabilities organizer.  I created a smaller one before, in sort of like a notebook version notebook version.  But my Nestabilities collection have started growing that I ended up with 3 notebooks.  It came to a point that I had no more room for the notebooks and I still have Nestabilities yet to be taken out of their packages.  So I decided to look for a box where the metal pages can fit perfectly.  And then I found one in Office Max.  It kinda looks like this one on your right, except that it's not a snap type. 

So I altered it to fit the theme of my craft room.  I used lace, adhesive backed fabric strip, flower sequins, prima flowers and brads.  I punched one edge of the fabric strip with Stampin' Up Scalloped Edge punch.  Then using Bazzil Institchz guide, I did the faux stitching technique.  I dotted the edge of the cover and the top edge of the box with white Signo pen, following the guide.  After that, I connected each dot with American Crafts white gel pen.  My favorite part of this box is the flower and the brands in front.   


Each Nestabilities page fits snugly in the box.  But with its height, I cannot put the cover.  So I decided to just place the cover in the bottom and serve as a design for the box. 

I love my new Nestabilities organizer.  I placed it to the left of my pen organizer, so it's within arms reach when I do my crafts.
