Kathy Orta is a force to be reckoned with in the paper crafts arena. I saw a youtube series she did on making what she calls a voyager box, and decided that I wanted to make one as well.
I don’t know if it was the design I liked or that you could decorate it with all kinds of papers, but I was compelled to make it. Four months later and it’s finished. I could only tackle bits and pieces at a time since I’m so busy with the kids through the day. It was a very long project — lots of steps. Longer than what I typically like to tackle. I have enough card stock to make a second and I will hold on to it in the hopes that someday I’ll complete another.
I’ve got it on my desk. It looks nice. I’m happy with it. I love the glass knob on the drawer. That was a nice touch.
Here are a bunch of pictures from all different angles.
