This project was a bit challenging, but I made it. On the right was my first attempt at a chair, made with toothpicks. On the left is my do-over. It measures about 41/2in. x 3in.
The pillow is about 1in.x1in.
I decided to sew the cover, instead of gluing it.
I used paperclips on the joint, and did not glue it down, this way you can adjust the back.
The boards I made out of cardboard and stamped on them. They measure 4in.x1/2in.
I rounded the corners, before I punched the holes in them.
For the towel, I just cut a piece of an old towel and rolled it up.
The holes I punched with my edge punch below.
It is raining here, so when the weather gets better I take some pictures outside with the chair. I just think the colors look better. Renate

I found a tutorial on how to make crackle paint. It turned out pretty good.
Inside of the box.
I added acetate so you can see inside the box.
I made the net from a tutorial I've seen. On the anchor and letters I put UTEE.
I also added acetate to this box.

This is how I make my shaker cards. I just make a pocket, this way it has more depth.
I just printed a underwater scene and glued it to the pocket.
Cut out your opening and add your acetate...
I also put some UTEE on the background to give it the "wet" look.
I found a video tutorial on You Tube from Rick Adkins. The only thing I changed, I made my sides 1/2 in. wide instead of a 1/4 in. and I used cardboard for some parts to make it stronger. It's a great tutorial, and I hope you will check it out on You Tube.
You start with a piece of cardstock 11x4.
Score at 3in. and 8in. Then you turn it to the short side and score it at 1/2in. on both sides. (sorry, I didn't have that picture).
Then you cut out the center of the outside flaps. After that you punch the handles on the side with the word window punch.
I don't have a woodgrain stamp, so I just used one from the Timeless Textures Stamp set.
I stamp the inside and outside.
In the center I added a piece of cardboard to make it stronger.
Then I cut 6 pieces out of cardboard. I stamp the front and back and distress all the edges.
I start on top on both sides gluing the pieces on.
Then the bottom on both sides, and last the center.
The finished product. I'm gonna use mine for little Easter crates.
