Handmade Monday: Paste Paper and a Square Lidded Box

Look at this pretty paste paper! I made it myself! It’s is one of my newly acquired skills, thanks to my husband’s craft and assembly class. I expect to feature a lot of different handmade paste paper in future book and box-making ventures!

Today’s post is short and sweet (I ran out of writing time this weekend, due to an emergency tomato planting venture—keep your fingers crossed!), but here are a few pictures of the finished paste paper product…

…and a couple shots of the paste paper in action, covering a three-inch lidded box that I learned how to make this semester. Isn’t it adorable? 🙂 Forget fancy clothes and expensive jewelry…if you want to keep this lady happy, hand me an interesting box and all will be well! 😉

Here’s a view from the top with lid flipped upside down to show how it’s constructed:

And here’s the box with its lid in place:

Happy Crafting!


Handmade Monday 2015 will revolve around paper, Paper, PAPER! I have cards and boxes to make, lettering to practice, and most of all handmade books to bind. So, if you share my strange addiction to paper, if pens and ink make your heart wink and flutter, if doodling makes you drool, then Handmade Monday posts were written just for you! Browse, enjoy, share your suggestions, and let me know what creative fun you’re up too as well!
