Project: Old Printer Box Scrapbook…

Here is a very fun project…Take an old printer box, they can usually be bought at an antique store on various auction sites such as eBay.  Take various papers, old pictures, jewelry, ephemera, trims etc. and fill the squares.  You can fill one square or several with one photo.  A visitor to Queen Bee Studio did the one shown below.  As you can see, there are photos that sit on top of the drawers and some are recessed.  I recommend having a good idea of where you are going to place your items before gluing them down.  Enjoy!

  2. I love old printer's drawers--and I did something similiar about a year ago. It was so much fun finding just the right images or little bits to place in each of the little cubbies!
