Let me show you my latest make, an altered wand box. For Christmas my daughter got a Luna Lovegood wand from the Santa. But since Santa didn't want to spend a lot of money he ordered the wand from China ;-) The wand in the box was a perfect replica, it was made from resin (the same material you can have in the official shops) but the the box was a bit cheap-looking with a huge Made in China logo, though a sturdy one.
So here is what I made:
And here is how it looked like before:
I altered it the same way how I prepared my wooden cheese box in November. But there were two exceptions: 1. here I used black DecoArt Americana Chalky Finish paint and 2. I used black crepe paper instead of napkin paper.
Here are some photos about the process:
Here is my magical wand box in Luna's style :-)
It was a real success!!! I can't tell you how my daughter loved it!!! Yippee!!!
For this I used two dies from Tim Holtz:
Sizzix Bigz Die, Crescent Moon&Stars (658716) - just the stars
Sizzix Movers&Shapers Die, Mini Owl&Crescent Moon (658725) - just the moon
