Christmas Altered Zink Box

söndag 22 november 2015

Hello crafters!
Ok, today I have an old zinc box to show that I have altered for Christmas, I intend to give away a Christmas gift in it. As usual when I get an idea, I get such a rush to get started that I totally forget to take a "before" picture.

But here is "after" my makeover. I started by painting the lid with white gesso to get a good base for the decoupage image which I then mounted. Then I went loose in my stash and had fun with dies, metal / ordinary flowers, etc.

I think that´s all that needs to be said about this project...sorry for the slightly gray photos, it was a bit poorly with daylight when they were taken. I hope you have had a great weekend!
Hugs, Birgit
