A Gift For You

söndag 3 juni 2012

Happy Sunday everyone!
I´m back with something totally different today.
A couple of weeks ago I got hands on a bargain box at a flea market and in it there was a small wooden box used to save telephone money in.
My first thought was to throw it, but then I realized that maybe I could make it into a unique gift box. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of it before I started on it.

First I painted it black with acrylic paint and then twice with white gesso.

Thereafter I sanded it so that it would get an old and worn appearance.

Then I used a couple of stamps from Crafty Secrets Bird Notes collection and added some embellishments and lace.

I love this...

That´s about all I think. Hope you all have a wonderful day!
Hugs, Birgit
