Tim Holtz carousel storage tower

Had so much fun with and make this carousel :-)
  Tried and make it a bit masculine, steampunk feel.
  It is made of multiple layers of chipboard glued together. then used black paper on all surfaces with Claudine Hellmuth multi matte. To decorate the tower i have tried to use most of Tim Holtz products.
  It took me over a month and make it but have had a lot of fun :-)
  Some challenges along the way, but mostly be solved.  The carousel spins and have used the base to the old tv spinner to  get it spin / rotation around
the large chipboard I bought here in Norway, but if you can not find it where you live, you can paste multiple layers together by and offset layers until you get the length you need.


On this side i made a glass door and i used the mini lantern from Tim Holtz
Papers i used in this storage are from different TH paper pads



Video


On this side there is drawers, shelves and a room for tissue paper. 
Also made a shaddow box just for decoration lol
Used a curtain holder to hold masking tape

Here there is plase for a lot of distress ink pads 

Made a blending / shutter curtain from chipboard and TH tissue paper. Used stamps and imbossed oer. Also used mettalick stains. Under ther is a room for 12 x 12 paper pads.

On this side there is drawers, shelves and a curtain on the left side

A llitle room here for rulers

Here are some pictures when i filled it up wit all the lovely stuff from Tim Holtz and ranger

    1. Thank you so much Denice :-) The clock is made from 5 - 3x3 chipboard and glued together with hinges as show bellow where there are pictures how i made the tower. The lid is cut about 3 1/8 and the sides 1 inch. Here you have to adjust a bit depence on how thick your chipboard is and how you glue it together. Hope this helps and have fun creating :-)

  62. I'm so in awe of your talent. I don't have the time to devote to recreating your fabulous storage unit, but I wish Tim Holtz would license your design and sell it (or perhaps the basic unit to be embellished by the purchaser). Though creating it is part of the magic, I would only be able to have this great storage if I could buy it.
