Mini Crate Re-purpose Tutorial With The Proxxon Tools Scroll Saw and Delta Sander

Hey everyone, Tammy here today with a fun project tutorial on how to re-purpose items in your home easily with Proxxon Tools. I created a cute Valentine's mini crate for my daughter to collect valentines in at school and now that the holiday is over, the crate was just sitting around not being used. I have a ton of planner stickers that I needed a place to store, so I thought I would re-purpose the mini crate for my needs. Here is how I did it...
5"x 5" Piece of 1/4 inch plywood 
Mini crate
Chalkboard paint
Mini gems

 I used a cut file from the Silhouette Design Store and created a monogram stencil I could trace and cut out with the scroll saw.
 I used repositionable adhesive to attach the stencil to the wood and trace the pattern.
I used the Proxxon Scroll Saw to cut out my design
For this project I used the letters that I cut out. I will use the outer design for another project later. I painted the letters with pink iridescent paint.
I glued on some plastic gems for added bling.
 Since I was re-purposing the mini crate I decided to distress it to make it look much different. I also like how the distressed chalkboard paint looks with the blinged out letters.
I attached the monogram letters to the crate with adhesive and that's it. It was super easy to make and I love how it turned out!
Now I have plenty of storage for all of my planner stickers. They are also organized and easy to find when I want to decorate my planner. I hope this gives you some ideas on how to re-purpose items around your house with Proxxon Tools!

Let's be friends!
