From Booklist:

A British designer shows how leftover containers--from used heart-shaped candy boxes to bedraggled rattan covered baskets--are transformed into utilitarian objects of beauty. Even better, none of Owen's 20 projects demand major crafting skills, such as woodworking or decorative painting. Her patterns have only a smidgen of complicated techniques, such as the use of glass-etch spray, but all of them receive plenty of photographic and instructional attention. All boxes are divided into one of three types: multimedia, including a contemporary beaded basket and a paper marquetry chess box; organic options, featuring a mosaic chest and layered beehive pots; and textural textiles, showcasing an opulent ribbon gift box or a Swedish felt sewing box, among others. An elegant yet simple layout with templates appended ensures that nothing has been omitted. Barbara Jacobs
