Boxing Clever

Boxing Clever

Hi Everyone!

Haha!  No we are not taking up
bloodsports............... we are 
revisiting an old topic with a
twist or two

Next Sunday is Mothering Sunday
and in case you are wondering
what to do aside from chocs and
flowers here is Claire Jackson to
the rescue with a beautiful little
present .......

"I started by painting a small wooden
 trinket box with shades of green 
and blue chalk paint on the outside 
and pearlescent paint on the inside. 

I then stamped the flowers and leaves 
around the sides and a border flourish
 around the top.
The leaves were coloured with alcohol markers
 and white gel pen, before I added Glossy Accents
 to the leaves and stems and
 Enamel Accents on the flowers.

The border on the top was decorated 
in the same way. 

The centre piece was made from chipboard pieces
 painted and glazed. 

To finish off I put patterned paper
 on the bottom.

The little trinket box even has a small magnet
 to snap the lid shut. 

It would make a lovely gift on its own, 
filled with chocolate or with some jewellery in it."

Thank you Claire, that really is a
lovely box and fun to make I shouldn't

Have you noticed the links?  I have
linked some of the items in the text
