I'm back with a quick post to share a project I made for the current challenge at Aurora Wings, I thought that there was another week to go but just noticed the deadline is today!
The theme is recycling. My lovely DIL is a huge fan of recycling and is always giving me boxes and containers to re-use, so here's what I did with this one!
I cut the cereal box to size to fit over the blue outside part of the original box, die cut an aperture then painted with a layer of gesso and then Starlights metallic paint in pearl, when dry I used Nuvo Glimmer Paste through a stencil, which gives a beautifully raised sparkly effect.
I framed the lovely Mistletoe Fairy,(coloured with copics) with red glitter card and placed it in the aperture cut into painted the cereal box, then glued the whole lot over the original blue box cover (it really didn't want to stick, so I resorted to UHU glue, which I hate because it tends to go everywhere I don't want it to go...but it does stick!!! I covered the two end panels with the red glitter card and sparkly red organza ribbon and added a pearly trim...(more Uhu!!)
I'm going to put my sister's Christmas pressie in this box...she has a 'box fetish' and will keep it forever :))
