Christmas Keepsake Box

Hello there everyone..

It is Tuesday and that means it is my turn over on the Indigoblu DT Blog.     My project this week is a heart shaped keepsake box..

Xmas Trinket #1

I used a paper mache heart shaped box with lid, and applied a couple of layers of White Gee-soo Good Gesso, and gave all the edges a touch of distress ink…

Xmas Trinket #2

Along the bottom edge of the box I ran some 1/8″ double sided tape then gave it a little dusting with Eton Mess Megaflake.. the gorgeous crochet lace trim around the top is available from the Indigoblu Shop, I picked up a some when I visited HQ in August, it was wrapped around a lovely wooden cotton reel.

Xmas Trinket #3

I decorated the top with a felt snowflake, then layered a couple of paper flower blooms together, these were spritzed with Vodka Martini Acrylic paint made up into a little spray bottle, the edges of the flower petals were dabbed with flitterglu and sprinkled with some vintage mica flakes.

Xmas Trinket #4

The wooden cotton reel base was covered with flitterglu applied directly with the phat foam, and smothered with Eton Mess Megaflake, the above picture is a side view of the trinket box

This is the back of the box, or the top of the heart 🙂 I love how the megaflake shines in contrast with the matte finish of the white gee-soo good Gesso
