Masculine Christmas Gift Box

Hello Everyone!

A warm welcome to Blogmas Day 10! .. gosh we are into double digits now πŸ™‚ we have 14 more days left until Christmas Eve and of course the end of Blogmas!

Today I have a masculine gift box to share with you.. it started out as a plain brown hexagonal paper mache box…

I half started making this the other night when I made a christmas card and mixed up too much of the light green paint, and instead of wasting it, I painted the lid of this box.

Supplies List :-

  • 1 x paper mache box
  • Paperartsy Hyde Park Semi Opaque Green Paint
  • Deco Art Media Tinting Base .. when I mixed it with the Hyde park it gave me the colour on the lid.
  • First Edition Wild at Heart 6×6 patterned paper stack (I love this stack)
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Black Tartan Ribbon from Stampers Grove
  • 3 x Painted Pinecones from Hobbycraft (you get 6 in a bunch)
  • Hot glue gun to stick the pinecones down

Now that I am writing this blog post and looking at the picture I am wishing that I had edged all the paper panels and the edges of the lid with distress ink just to give it some definition..

As always, thank you for popping round and I will see you tomorrow for Day 11 πŸ™‚

Sarah x
