Decorated Box

 My son had a Teaser box with a sliding insert  and he asked me to decorate it for him to put all his smoking stuff in out of the cats way lol.

I used woodgrain paper for the sides from The Works,a dark red on the top.

Had a white frame in paper drawer the ones you get in a photo frame and covered that with some TH paper and stuck it onto some P.paper had for yonks with birds/nests and eggs on then covered most of it up!Glued all that to the top of box.

Seagull stamp from Crafty Individuals and cut out and glued onto background,also stamped a large mushroom stam from AAll&Create onto background too.Mushrooms from Rubber Dance were stamped onto white card and coloured then onto an old book page-I also glued some fibres and twine on the bottom,the green leaf on the side was a die-cut from The Works and cut out of a leftover piece of inky background and added a little die-cut (Hero Arts)Bee.

All stamps were coloured with promarkers.

Wow, this is so fabulous Carol and what a great idea to upcycle a chocolate in this way. I love all of the texture and those amazing mushrrom stamps look terrific with the different treatments you have given them.

Great work.

Dee's Craft Room said...

Why is it that I never spot my typo's until after I have posted my comment? I meant to say chocolate box - I never really thought that you had managed to get all of that decoration on a Teaser!

I really should start wearing my reading glasses more.

Stay safe.

Dionne xx
