Well if your house is anything like my house there will be loads of boxes (now emptied) all over the place.
Sooo, time to get creative and crafty!
I wanted somewhere to put my cards at work, a little stand.... just so the cards looked nicer and so they didn't get damaged.
This is what I came up with.............
I took a box and sealed the opening, cut it at an angle just past the half way line - then stuck it together.
This gave me the base for my holder.
I gave all the sides (inside and out) a good coat of Do Crafts acrylic paint - had to be purple for me! lol
When that was dry I covered the whole box in a generous layer of crackle glaze and left it overnight.
In the morning I painted every surface with white acrylic, as it dried the crackle magic happened.
I tied the bow around it all and then sprayed it all with glitter spray (this should have been done outside but I thought - mwah... what's the worst that can happen...... well - my desk is now glittery, my floor now sparkles and I not have a lot of glitter paper - even the BT bill sparkles!)...
But I do love how sparkly the box is now!!!!
I thought I would share a wee card with you too -
I created this card for a special lady who has decided to stay at home with her twins instead of returning to paid work....... who can blame her - as her twins are adorable!
Well, back to work for me..... I am starting to create with the new goodies from Do Crafts for the next loop of demos.... watch this space to see them as I get creating....
