Memory Box - Story

Hi guys! It's Sandie here today with an inspiration project for this month's challenge, which is Altered or Recycled Art.  

I altered a papier mach√© circle box to make a Memory Box - perfect for childhood keepsakes. 


First I painted the box with white acrylic paint using a baby wipe to achieve a distressed look. While that dried I made some resin flowers using Melt-It, White Pearl Powder and Pomegranate Powder. To make the flowers I use foil cases, a peg to hold the foil case (it gets hot!!) and my heat gun. 

Once the paint had dried I covered the box with patterned papers, sanding the edges. Then I layered up an inked bingo card with leaves which I'd heat embossed with Olive embossing powder. I stamped out the little girl from the Child's Play clear stamp set. 


I then layered up the flowers before adding some green velvet ribbon and some white peals . 



WOW Products used:
Stamps - Child's Play (Retired)
