ID: Xmas 07 Gift Boxes

6"w x 5"h x 1" thk.


ID: Just For You


ID: Wishes

These boxes start out as a basic beige cardboard box. I painted one with Lumiere Crimson and the other with Daniel Smith's Gold Gesso. 

I used a stencil and Brilliance Gold stamp pad for the Little gift box "Just for You" then thermal embossed it with Red Dragon embossing powder. The Merry Christmas is a brass stencil and a mix of Golden's molding paste mixed with their fluid acrylic metallic gold and some gold glitter sprinkled on top while the paste was wet.

I rubber stamped the words "Wishes Do Come True" with a snowflake alphabet and Color Box Petal Point "Alchemy" and clear embossed it. I lay down some curvy strips of Terrific Tape and sprinkled the top and bottom one with red glitter and copper glitter. The middle strip I put mini glass marbles, silver, copper & multi colored and then sprinkled some copper glitter to fill some of the blank areas. I then put a coat of Diamond Glaze on top, both as a decorative element but also to add durability. I added red stripes with a  Zig marker.
