Hi there, Joanne here to show you how simple it is to convert a box that you were about to throw out, into a treasured gift !
So as you can see - its a plain box and all I did was cover it with one sheet of KaiserCraft paper (from their Base Coat Collection - Cardboard). I then destressed the edges in black to bring it together.
Then I began to add embellishments from the new chipboard collection from Wycinanka - they are amazing and so easy to work with ! Here I have combined the' large feather's, 'photo film' and' fullness of summer' - in with some prima flowers and Tim Holtz ideology collection.
I sprayed a Petaloo Butterfly with Gold Glimmer Mist and added a Wooden 'R' (Studio Calico) in order to personalise it. Then I added some narratives expressions - and added in some extra prima flowers and chipboard on the side to give it that added touch ! All it needs now is a 'special' something inside -but if you made this - then the box would be the big hit !!!
Enjoy and thanks for looking !
