Hei there.. today I would love to show you some wooden gift boxes I altered to give to some of my friends. They are already at their houses and iam able to show them on my blog now.
These boxes are made from plain unfinished wood – so they take easily any kind of paint you can get them in the $1.00 bin I was earlier today at Michaels and noticed that they are now all marked down to .50 cents a piece. I did alter them before with some Aridiondack paint dapper or the ones I show you today are even easier coated with some Glimmer Mists. Once the box has completely dried, you can start stamping and decorating. I used on all of my boxes a beautiful swirl stamp out of the Magnolia collection. (Memento ink worked fine) Than I traced or filled in the the lines with Stickles glue.
To decorate the top I used mostly dies from Magnolia – this Bloomy tag die and THIS “Simple Tag” one The flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts, Bells are from the dollar store. Other embellishments (large snowflake, gem border stickers, swirls and golden pine cones) are by Recollections found at Michaels as well.
Stamps used are Holding Tilda – in Mini _ (did you know Sir Stampalot carries Mini stamps as well) and regular size – Sentiment 25 North pole is also by Magnolia and can found at Sir Stampalot.
For those of you who were watching and willing to bid on Ebay on the Fundraiser items I was to list… iam so sorry.. I received this morning an email from Ebay. The site has certain rules which did not allow me to list the items. I either had to take the listings down or they would permanently make changes to my Ebay account. Which would limit me to buy and sell in the future. There were all sorts of paragraphs listed in the message and it was kind of scary. I ‘m sorry for all the trouble I did try my best. Again.. I would like to thank everyone who did try to help me and the family.
as always with love
