My first wooden box!
I was in my local Dollar Tree, and I came across a couple of little wooden boxes. They measure a little over 3.5x3.5, and they have hinges on them as well as a little small magnet to keep it closed. I grabbed them up and figured I would eventual do something with them...couldn't leave them there, especially only costing a $1.00 a piece! Sorry for all the pics, but I wanted to capture as much detail as possible. :)
This is the natural box when I bought it. Nice and clean!
I used some alcohol ink to kind of stain the box. As you can see, my fingers were pretty orange by the time I was done! I'm a hands on kind of girl! :)
I used my Prima Paper Pad-Annalee collection on the top and both layers all around the box. I used some Color me Crazy flowers on the top of the box for the start of my embellishment process. I inked the bottom flower with Glimmer Mist. I inked the second one lightly with a orange ink pad and then adorned it with a small crochet flower and added a pearl bead in the center. The rest of my embellishments, are from my stash from previous projects.
Trying to be a little more creative, I added some large beads to the bottom as feet! I had a ball creating this! Thanks for looking!
