Little Boxes in the Attic....Soon....

This is going to be short and sweet today. Tessie wants lots of storage boxes for her attic. I have just now printed them. I probably won't get them made and ready until tomorrow. I have other things that need to be done in the real world today.

These boxes were off of one of my favorite sites for printies. If you have not been there, I suggest that you go. Jim's site is one that I discovered when I first started working with the computer and have used it many times. He always seems to have what I need. http://www.printmini.com/printables/

I needed storage boxes and he had them. Tessie is very excited. She will now have a place to store her Ant Whiskers, Caterpillar Fur and other things. She is busily making labels. There is one labeled Misc. Parts. I don't think I want to see what she is going to store in that box.

I noticed that she has one labeled Pond Scum....I don't think that is going to work in a box. Now we are going to have to start looking for bottles too.

If you do the plain boxes, be sure to fold the ink to the inside. It will look more like a real box. That's what I am going to do with these. Then Tessie will have to glue the labels on the outside.

Anyway, while I am doing other things, she told me to remind you of her favorite French printies site. I ran onto this one via a French embroidery blog. http://minipitou.free.fr/ If you are interested in boxes, this site has lots of places to go look. On the first page go to "imprimables". Then you can look under "boites" or translate it with babel fish or Google and you will find that it has a vast collection of all kinds of sites for all kinds of printies. It also has all kinds of tutorials listed.

Have a good day and have fun searching.

See you tomorrow.

I love Jim's site already, but thanks for the new french site as well. You can never have too many printies!

Thanks for the link to the French site. I found some tiles I can use for my kitchen floor or as border tiles? I've used Jim's printies before but I saved some more today.
Wish I knew how to share the photos on my blog. They are saved in Word and the files won't transfer. Got any ideas?

I just noticed that you used one of the box designs I donated to Jim Printables. I love my design still getting used.
