« Correction | Main | Traveling Watch Box Part 2 »




Stupendous in all it's glory. This is one wicked project. Plus you have taken some brilliant photos of it for this post. 'm in awe as always, of your talent sir. Pxx


Just love it, I had cut out Tims latch thingy for mine before I saw what you did, LOL great minds... (I think not, my efforts are humble compared to yours). I love the detail of the handle, I seriously want to make mine like that.... Thanks again

Another lovely box Jim. I am amazed that you have the time to share this with us while you are so busy with the Graphic 45 samples - do you ever sleep?!
Thanks for all the details. I can't wait to see what you come up with next!

Love this box! The brads that you used look like they have a bigger head than Tim's long fasteners. Can I ask what brand they are? Thanks for sharing.


It turned out awesome! Love the "clean" look. As far as messing up on the measurements, that's what they get for being so motivated(in which I am very jealous and wish "I" could be like them!) I think they will forgive you. ;)

Jim: It looks so fantastic! Thanks for walking us through it. I have to try this but I'm planning a sewing box. Thanks for all your help with my crafting as well. You are just so kind.

Of course....Actually, there are three different ones.

On the latches I did use Tims long fasteners.

On the handle, I used the larger Recollection brads from Michaels.

On the strapping, I used probably what I use the most, Recollections Antique Copper that come 80 to a package. I think it is Item # 347126 also from Michaels.

Thanks for asking!

Looks fabulous, Jim! So generous of you to share. I might even give this a go my self. So, excited to see your creations for G45. I know they will be awesome. Try to get some sleep, too. ;o)

Hi Jim, I really enjoyed your projects for the G45 audition. I would like to try the smaller watch box. I am having trouble cutting my chipboard and getting clean straight edges, would like any tips you can share. Also, where did you buy the trunk clasps you used? Thanks for the inspiration. Sheryl.


Thanks Jim - you're the best!

Jim,you are a hoot. Appreciate the correction although I haven't gotten around to starting this project yet. It is beautiful,but I see it as a traveling makeup and nail polish case for my grandaughter.She has more than her share. Thanks Jim,I enjoy reading your blog everyday.

What a great project. I'm glad to see you doubled up the chipboard and made it to last. Really like this and might have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing it with us.


Okay, so I have a question. When I marry the pieces with the 1 1/2" strip, how big is my new piece? Like 12 x 13?
