Leather Working!

So my semester has been insane with the amount of classwork I've had to do. Things are starting to wind down so I now have a bit of time to do some crafting, at least on weeks that I don't babysit. This past week I started my first real leatherworking project. My boyfriend got me back into playing Magic the Gathering and since making a few decks I've wanted to make custom deck boxes for those decks. I started with my favorite deck--my blue and white artifact deck--and created this deck box. This was my first try so it's not as good as it could be, but I'm happy with the result. I used various leather crafting tools to create the raised and indented parts of the leather, painted them with Daler and Rowney Pearlescent Acrylic Inks and sealed it with some leather sealer.

The box holds my deck perfectly and is closed using some magnets. Best of all it still fits in my fat pack box.

 I should be finishing up my Black and Green anti-mill deck box and can show that off later. I also have a project in the works for the Make it Crafty Design Team. Hopefully I will have that finished and posted by tomorrow. And thanks to working cling mounting all of my stamps I have tons of scraps so please look forward to my Waste not Want not Wednesdays to come back.
