MOSAICING A MEMORY ALBUM BOX
Yours truly have been trying her hand at mosaicing once again. This is time I attempted to mosaic a box for Duane's 21st memory album. I have been scurrying around in a few local arts and craft shops, but could not find a suitably sized box for a scrapbook album. So I did what we all seem to be doing more and more, surfed the net and by poor chance surfed into the Pridia Arts & Crafts online shop. They specialised in wooden box blanks for the craft industry and had just the right album box with lid I was looking for. So I went ahead immediately placing my order online and the rest of the process was a breeze with such friendly and speedy service ... I was actually amazed.
Pridia are based in Jeffreys Bay, RSA and posting the items to me here in Johannesburg was no sweat and the boxes arrived nicely packed and all in tact. And an added bonus is that they are very reasonably priced.
Duane's Mom, Belinda wanted to keep his 21st album in a box which she could also use as a display item on a coffee table. Her colour schemes were oranges, browns and yellows so I am holding thumbs that my tile choices were the right ones.
If any of you also would like to create a mosaic album box like this, or even just to keep your 12x12 cardstock out of arms way, just contact Pridia Arts & Crafts Online and get your box now.
Thanks again for taking the time to pop in and for all your lovely comments. Will be visiting your space soon. Wishing you all a fantastic crafty week.
