I spent the last couple of days inside working on the Jacob's Ladder Box or Karakuri Bako or Trick Box. I first read up on it in 'All Things Paper: 20 Unique Projects from Leading Paper Crafters, Artists, and Designers' by Ann Martin. Cecelia Louie contributed her take on the Trick Box in Ann's book. Cecelia calls it the 'Mysterious Stationery Box'. Cecelia's directions are very good. This box is fascinating and such fun too.
So, then only thing to do was modify the box into a ordinary box with three compartments - with lovely eco printed covers and linings.
One thing about this exercise is that it is a good reminder that not everything goes smoothly or perfectly but that the results can be lovely nevertheless.
I am looking forward to attempting this box again.
