Christmas Eve Box

Good afternoon everyone
I hope you're enjoying your Friday so far.
My crafty share for today is a
'Christmas Eve Box'
I've been making this on and off for a bit but finally got round to finishing it.


I started with a wooden box which I purchased from 'Hobbycraft'
I gave it a quick light sand just to make sure that it was smooth and then painted it with 'Dark Scarlet Americana multi surface satin acrylic paint'
I made a template from printer paper to cover to middle of the box and around the sides, just leaving a corner and along the edges showing, I just tore the paper, it doesn't have to be an exact shape.
I then stamped snowflakes randomly with Versamark and heat embossed in gold.
I used gold gilding wax lightly all along the edges.
The gilding wax was also used to colour the wooded lettering and then I sprayed it with glitter spray, I attached to the box using wet glue and added metal snowflake embellishments.
I also added metal corner embellishments and a metal clasp.

To finish it off I lined the inside with green felt.


I still might add bits to it knowing me but for now I'm quite pleased with it.
Thank you for visiting today
