What a fun project! I had just discovered an odd assortment of tin boxes in my desk while spring cleaning and I wasn't sure what to do with them, now they are all awaiting transformation. I posted my first Storybox on my blog: http://samanthaconklin.blogspot.com/2011/04/storybox-sunday.html and will be following along each week.
