I wanted to make a box for my youngest son and thought that it might be a great idea to alter an empty box of tea bags. I really love the look achieved as you will be able to see, it is totally transformed and doesn’t look at all like a tea box. It’s quite fun to be able to recycle, which of course makes this project very affordable. Instead of using music sheets, it could also have been old book pages. – explains Vicky.

I am a mixed media crafter with passion for layers and textures. Architextures are my new love and I can feel the relationship going from strength to strength in the foreseeable future. I have worked with CCB since January 2017 and it felt like home straight away. The team is amazing and the crafting products are even better, which makes it perfect combination and an amazing place to be.
