Ink Box

Puisque mes petites élèves d' hier ont super bien travaillé, je tiens ma promesse! Et elles le méritent amplement: même la coupure de courant général ne les a pas arrêtées: elles ont continué à travailler à la lueur des bougies! Je leur avais promis la boîte en image sous toutes les coutures, afin qu'elles puissent finaliser la leur. Donc les filles: voici!

As my little students yesterday worked really really well, i keep my promise! And they do desirve it: even the general power cut didn't stop them: they continued to work by candlelight! I promised them pictures of the box in every angle, so that they can finalise theirs. So girls: here it is!


Pour les curieux: nous avons démarré avec du 2 mm, du masking tape de bricolage et ensuite... beaucoup de patouille. Bref, tout ce que j'aime!
Les filles: n'oubliez pas de me montrer vos boîtes finies hein! Et encore merci pour votre enthousiasme, ce fut un réel plaisir :)

For the curious among you: we started of with 2mm cardboard, do-it-yourself masking tape and ...a lot of inky fingers. In short, everything i like!
Girls: don't forget to show me your boxes once you're done! And thanks again for your enthusiasm, it was a real pleasure :)

Edit: Pour répondre à LA question du jour: la boîte est entièrement fait main. Donc si vous voulez tenter l'aventure: on découpe du carton 2mm qu'on assemble aux dimensions voulues. Il y a toutefois moyen de trouver des boîtes toutes faites que vous pouvez mettre à votre sauce. Bon amusement!

Edit: To answer to THE question of the day: the box is entirely hand-made. So if you want to give it a try: we start with a sheet of 2 mm cardboard which we cut and assemble to the wanted size. You can although find ready-to-use boxes you can decorate. Have fun!
