Bird Box

I needed a small gift to bring as a hostess gift and wanted to make something special. I painted this little wood box a metallic red and rubbed the edges with Rub N Buff to age it. The script is stamped on the box as well as gold paper. I painted and glued on the little legs. For the top, I found these great wood birds on ebay and covered one in scrap cloth. The inside of the box is lined with the same cloth. The Blessings tag, I made in clay.

Polymer Tile Box

I was so inspired by a recent craft book purchase that I had to dive into one of the projects. A small wooden box elevated on painted legs. The lid and inside panel are painted polymer clay. The brass frame is real and holds a tiny picture of a butterfly from one of my cards. The textures were created with rubber stamps and I used small seed beads to make some of the thinner stripes. The swirl part is covered with gold leaf. Lots of steps to this fun project!
