I am all about recycling materials so my little cardboard mushroom box worked perfect but was not near as cute or user friendly as the Artist Trading Coin holder that Retro Cafe Art Gallery has in their shop.
By user friendly, I mean this little box can be used in a several different ways and the possibilities of decorating it are endless.
One you add a little glue and assemble the box, you can see the possibilities of adding more. They can be set non-attached side by side or you can glue the sides together horizontally by making one long bin or you stack them vertically like a tall self and keep adding as necessary until you get the height you like or need and the you can always add another column or two and eventually you could even have your own ATC Mail box slots, (also great for other supplies). So needless to say, this little box packs a big punch.
After my boxes were assembled and glued, I gave the shelf which was now one piece a light coat of gesso and let dry. Then I painted it all blue with acrylic paint.
To the sides I added a stamp by Finnabair that says:
"Don't Forget to Fly". You don't want to add anything to the sides unless it is flat like a stamp or paint just incase you want to add more rows to the side of the boxes.
I finished off the edges with some color simply using my fingers and then adding a little gold trim.
My square Moo Business Cards
fit perfectly in these slots!
