Thinking Outside the Box
Inside the box too, in this case. Remember my giveaway win from Mod Podge Rocks ? I finally completed a project that used many elements from my prize. I started with this paper mache treasure box that I had in my basement. It came from Oriental Trading many years ago…sometimes it pays to hang on to stuff.
I mixed some brick red acrylic paint with a little bit of black and painted the outside.
I started cutting and pasting various papers from the stack onto the box with Mod Podge Matte. I received many great borders in my package, and I featured one of my favorites on the box cover. With an old nail file, I distressed all of the edges.
Oh no! Yup, it was at this point I decided that, yes, I truly did hate the latch. Bye! Don’t panic friends, it’s all good. I covered the patches with more paper, and then used a beautiful brad to finish the front.
Much, much better! Whew. I painted the inside with black acrylic paint, and added a bit of paper and embellishment.
Thanks again Amy for the giveaway! I still have so many things left…they will keep me busy for a while.
