I often use wooden boxes, but usually I alter them with decoupage technique. But sometimes I stamp on the lid and colour them with acrylic paints as I do it on cards with inks.
Right now, I'm ready with a cute box that can be really handy around Christmas. I'm not sure yet which kid in my family will get it.
I think I can't name all the DecoArt Americana paints that I used for my box, but I can tell you that the lid was covered with White Wash, the bottom and Santa's suit with Santa Red, the tree with Mistletoe.
The text and the little stars were embossed with Ranger Embossing Powders, Princess Gold and Red.
On the lid of my box I wanted to create a Christmas scene which looks like a page of a Christmas tale book.
The MFT Stamps I used:
Hand Lettered Holiday - only the little star
Jingle All The Way - Santa, Rudolph and a package
Santa's Elves - packages
Gift Tag Greetings - 'Naughty or Nice' text
I hope you like it! Today I'll try to come again with a vintage Hungarian Christmas postcard... and I have another box to show...
With this box I would like to enter the Monday Challenge of the Simon Says Stamp blog: Christmas Gifts
