I made these small boxes out of old book covers.
They are the perfect size to organize small things that I also want to display.
Some of the odds and ends on our workdesks are quite beautiful in their own right.
They need a special container to show them off.
you will need:
old book covers
an x-acto knife
twine, ribbon or strips of fabric
(and I added paper folded and glued over the top edges to make them more "finished")
