Little Brown Box


Thought I would share with you a little project I’m working on. I went into Scrapbook Sisters the other day and Julie gave me a next of plain brown boxes and said “see what you can do with these” Oh and you will notice ‘close ups’ are much improved! A big thank you to Julie for showing me how to use my camera.

This was the blank canvas

I completely covered the box and lid in  Adirondak Acrylic Paint Dabber, Twisted some string and stuck it around the box and lid. Then stippled on Bronze Dabber and then Snowcap. Stuck some tiny white seed pearls around the box and lid. The flowers were cut from White Crepe paper using the small circle nestabilities. Each petal was then coloured with Copic markers and edged with Glamour dust and the centres finished with silver and pearl embellishments and a few little white stamens.

Julie was kind enough to show this box on the Scrapbook Sisters Blog last night. Hopefully today I can see what I can come up with the remaining sizes of boxes.

I really enjoyed making this and would it would make a lovely Keepsake Gift for someone.

Thanks for stopping by
