If you are the type to like getting out and spending time being creative outside an “On The Go” easel and art box is just the thing to keep all your supplies together and give you a great work surface for any environment.
The Walnut Hollow Contemporary Memory Album cover makes a great easel when paired with the box.
Whatever medium you like to work in the supplies are easily store in the box.
And the two pieces are easily transported by using a simple recycled belt “old school” style.

Tools and Materials
template (download below)
scrap wood if desired
art supplies to fill your travel art box and easel
recycled belt to secure and carry your case and easel
Download the template.
Place a piece of carbon paper under the template and trace the image with a red pen onto the lid of the box keeping the image in place with a bit of washi tape. Using a red pen helps to see what lines you have traced and make sure you get them all.
Burn the image using the Creative Versa-Tool®.
Burn stars around the perimeter of the album cover.
Again allow the Creative Versa-Tool® to cool and replace it with the zero tip.
I did a few test patterns on a piece of scrap wood and decided on a pattern created by using the zero on the side and burning the shape end to end around the side of the box.
I hope you’ll give this idea a try and create travel art easel and box decorated with your own special style.
