As part of my ever growing love of all things festive, just take a look at the previous posts on advent calendars and mini houses for proof, I have altered another of the little wooden boxes from The Works to house a festive fold-out mini album. Measuring a diminutive 2” square this album does not have a huge amount of space to play with but it’s ideal for lists of the pressies Ray and I exchange in the coming gift giving extravaganza. Anyway, enough festive blathering here’s the little box in all its twinkly glory.
I started by painting the box using metallic silver Artiste paint, spritzed with red and gold Artiste spritzing ink then embellished with a reindeer from Hobbycraft, snowflakes by Kaiser craft, an odd snowflake brad with the legs chopped off, a bit of a broken Christmas garland and to round it off a liberal coating of Glitz It iridescent glitter glue….and there we have it one twinkly festive box.
I used the same template as my quote mini to create the album and matted it with Papermania Letter To Santa paper, a gorgeous paper pack which I’m currently using to create a new mini album. Lastly I topped the mini with an element from the ‘Postage Stamps Foiled’ pack raised on 3d pads over a ribbon tie to act as the book closure.
Hope you've been inspired to indulge in a little Christmas craft.
