ATC box prototype
I have made a quick prototype of an ATC box using plain mountboard just to check how to contruct it and the sizing. It seems to have worked OK so now I can unlace it and decorate. I need to make a new side because I punched the top by accident. I used the Bind it all machine to punch the holes and to put in the binding to make the hinge for the top. Haven't decided what to lace the final version with - I could do a continuous lacing as in the photo or I could tie each hole separately using ribbon. I just used some yarn for this one that was thin enough to go through my needle to see how it came together.
Edit: I have remembered now that I saw a box made with a bind it all machine in Craft Stamper and managed to dig out the copy and it was in August 2007. Phew, glad I found that.
