Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I am always looking for fun and creative ways to display my "stuff", and Vision Box Ideas has definitely given me MANY ideas. (Now if only I had all the time in the world to do crafts!) The book is by Mark Montano. If his name sounds familiar to you (like it did to me!) it is because he was one of the designers on the TLC Show "While You Were Out" (which for a while was hosted by 2gether member Evan Farmer so I made sure to never miss an episode!)

Vision Boxes are 3-D mixed media projects. The book shows you ways to make your own boxes or you can buy a deep frame at the craft store and work from that. (I think shadow boxes would probably also work.) There are a lot of cute ideas in the books with a list of supplies in order to duplicate them, but I think if I get around to making one of them I will modify it so it is more "me".

The book is full color and shows images throughout the steps of creating the boxes so you can be sure not to "mess up" (however, a lot of times in crafts such as these it is often the things that are done as a mistake that really give the items a life and look of their own!)
