I wanted to make a special box for my daughter for this Mother's Day. She is expecting a little girl and I wanted to make her something that she could keep small treasures in (i.e., baby bracelet, first lock of hair, etc.). I started out with a paper mache box and painted it with acrylic paint. Used a vintage image from The Graphics Fairy. Trim was lace purchased at JoAnn and Prima. Findings were from recollections.
I used modge podge on the colored side of the image (printed from a color laser) and placed it on the painted box, waited for it to dry and then moistened the paper to reveal the image. I stamped Treasures on the side (Tim Holtz distress inks), gave the butterfly the little girl is holding a little dab of stickles and sealed it with modge podge. Easy.
