Yesterday I went to my favorite closeout/discount store and they had three small Tim Holtz Configurations boxes. (5.5 x 5.5) A few weeks ago they had a bunch of Tim Holtz come in and I bought some paper and embellishments, but left the boxes because I didn't think I had a use for them. Stupid, I know. What was I thinking! They had the large sizes and small.
So, I didn't get the small boxes yesterday because I still didn't think I had a use for them. As I was sitting here looking at my very cluttered living room, I decided that I need to make a picture collage wall in my hallway to get some of the family pictures off of the sofa table and shelves. Fine. Then I could also get some of these trinkets off of the entertainment center too. Great. But where to put them? Why not A TIM HOLTZ CONFIGURATIONS BOX TO DISPLAY THEM ON MY NEW PICTURE WALL!!! I felt like a genius!
So I told DH about them, still thinking it might not work, and he almost MADE me go out and get the ones I saw at the discount store. I couldn't believe it. So great to be married to an enabler!!
Anyhoo, I went out and all three boxes were still there and I got them all. I got them back home and found that the items I wanted to display do fit, but not really so perfectly, so now I am thinking I should go get a larger configurations box and put them all in with plenty of space to decorate around them. I think it would be better. The question then becomes, what do I do with my three little boxes?
So I pose the question to all of you creative people. What should I do with the three small boxes I have? Decorate them in three different colorways and add them to my wall? Decorate them as gifts for friends? What would you use to decorate them? Thanks for your advice.
