…and just what is a Krimskrams Korb?
Why, it’s the place to store your *Krims & Krams of course! *Bits n’ Bobs in German
Here’s how to make your own with objects that are lurking about the house:
You’ll need: a standard sized (30x45cm) bamboo or heavy fabric placemat, coordinating paint, two (12x6cm) pieces of wood or thick cardboard & a glue gun
Paint the wood (or cardboard) to match the placemat.
Lay the placemat flat, on each side measure 10cm from one end to the center & stick on your wood blocks using the hot glue gun.
Apply glue to the ends of the wood & carefully fold the placemat up onto your blocks. The end of your placemat should overlap the top of the wood, simply stick it down with a dab of glue.
Repeat the above step & stick the placemat to the back of the wood blocks…
Add a simple closure by tying a bead to the front of the lid & a loop to the front of the box!
A bamboo placemat combined with wood block sides is incredibly sturdy!
Fill it up with your bit n’ bobs…
…and then go create some more!
