Collection In A Box found on marthastewart.com
- paper or card stock
- small box with a lid
- measure and mark a long strip of paper or card stock whose short side matches the long side of the box
- accordion-fold the strip and glue the first page to the inside boxes lid and the last page to the inside of the boxes bottom
- add your tiny treasures to the pages and label to cover with the name of the collection
I liked this idea when I saw it but realized that I didn’t have a collection that would fit inside a box like that. They were too big or fragile or bulky so I began to think. Inspired by Lily’s wonderful Christmas gift I decided I would combine these ideas to make Poetry Presents. Follow the same directions up above, but instead of adding a collection, write a poem. It could be an original poem or an old favorite that you want to illustrate. Have fun creating and writing.
