Christmas Gift Box

 

I have a rather large pile of boxes because they maybe useful one day! I have actually used one of those boxes to make a little 3 inch square gift box.

I painted the box pink, and stamped tiny snowflakes on the sides of the lid. The scene on the top was created with watercolours and glitter, and a lovely set of Forest Magic Stamps.

 

Thank you so much for visiting, I hope to see you again soon!

Back to School Matchbox drawers and Mini Books


Hello, I hope everyone has had a good summer. Its my most favourite time of the year, and it's always sad to see it slip into Autumn. It's now time for children to return to school so this months challenge at Mixed Media Mojo is Back to School with a Twist of Primary Colours.

I made this little set of drawers with a little girl making the best of her last days of school holidays, and happily flying her kite .

You can find many templates for matchboxes on Google. When you have found the one you like, print it onto card and carefully cut it out. I decided to make a three drawer box. Before assembling the boxes I coloured each one in primary colours. I used ink dusters to apply the dye inks. The boxes could also be covered in pretty papers, we all have plenty of those!
 

I stacked the boxes on top of one another and used PVA glue to keep them in place. A small decorative brad can be added as a handle.
I stamped and water coloured a lovely Phyllis Harris girl stamp. I wanted her to stand up on top of the box so I left a tab on the bottom of the stamp. I folded the tab up and glued it to the top of the box.

A diamond shape cut out of some card works well as a kite. I adhered it to some wire and placed it on top of the match box to appear as if the girl is holding on to it.

Now what to put inside the drawers? You could put small sweets or mini gifts such as erasers, pencil toppers etc I decided to make some miniature books. I used my Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland and Classic Pooh stamps, to decorate both sides of the miniature accordian books.

Thank you,so much for stopping by. I hope to see you again soon.
