Hello everyone! Today I have my first tutorial up at 7Dots Studio HERE.
I repurposed this chunky box from a Camel belt box my husband
got years ago. I always kept it as it's a good size & so sturdy!
Before the tutorial let's take a look at some close-ups! I used
gelatos for my colouring & I really fell in love with them
properly, for the first time. I have ordered some more...!!!
The Illumination Collection has 2 sets of stamps that go along with it
& I used this set below. As you can see it is really modern & versatile.
Once I had stamped on the paper & coloured some random
areas adding stickers was the finishing touch & so easy!
I gave my daughter this box, to store her letters & cards from her boyfriend.
She loves it & was grateful to have something pretty to store them in.
The only other products I added, apart from the obvious adhesives, were some gesso
to tone down the box base, some gauze & drywall tape for texture underneath
the photograph & some wash tape to finish off the edges of the box neatly.
This was simple & fun to make & a great way of upcycling
& saving money too - you should try it!!
And here is the tutorial - I do hope someone out there finds it useful...
Some handy tips on how to put a box together, because, like all things,
it always looks easier than it actually is until you try to do it yourself LOL!
Thank you so much for your visit - I really appreciate it!!
