Hearts and Flowers Gift Box

Hi everyone..

The sun is out today for a change so I headed up to my wee shed to make some stuff 🙂

I have not been feeling very crafty of late, so it was nice to get up there and get covered in paint and glue!

I made two things today … I altered a paper mache heart shaped box and made a display board for my fridge magnets (to take to a workshop).

I recorded a video for both which I will edit this afternoon and will blog the display board tomorrow.

I made a slight change to the box at the last minute and will post a picture below..

I had a small box of Woodware mulberry flowers in dark colours, so I used the same paint I painted the box with to paint the flowers so that they matched.
