I love making cool boxes for gift cards. I am away from my family so gift cards it usually is! So I make them special!
So if you have a snack cheese box you too can have some fun!
I started with painting a cheese box with some ivory acrylic painted over the lettering. I also have been saving up my baby wipes which are colored with beautiful inks. I knew that I was saving them for a wonderful project.
After painting I used Tim Holtz's distress paint in Brushed Pewter to add texture to my box. It has a dauber top and I dabbed it all over. I then cut the baby wipes in strips and then applied to the box with Aileen's tacky glue. I was ready for the bling effect. Thank goodness for the beautiful Metallic Mica Powder. It is wonderful for adding beautiful sparkle to any project.
I love adding the Mica powder and then I added pearl 3D paint to add some more sparkle.
This was a very simple project but I believe very elegant! Have a wonderful Christmas and I will see you the following week!
