So I picked up this colorbox tool set things at a thrift store for like a 1.50 because it looked neat, but I'm not sure what you use it for, scrapbooking as far as I can tell looking it up on internet. Its in a big black case with differnet color chalk pads, 2 tools and a lot of attachments and alot of stamp things. What do I do with it my crafty friends?

If the attachments have the black foam pads in different shapes, you attach them to the tool, hold the foam part to a light bulb for a few seconds, and then press the warm foam into a texture such as lace, fruit/vegetable bags, shoe soles or rubber stamps.  The foam picks up the texture of whatever object you used, then after it has cooled completely  you can ink and stamp it to create patterns and designs in scrapbooking or other craft projects.  When you want a different texture, you simply re-heat and press into the new texture.  Hope this helps!
