At this time of year I start preparing a few gifts for the festive season. If I don't start now nothing is finished on time.
This week I have been making a gift box using items I have bought in the op shops during the year.
The white Lumiere paint is the only item that I have bought at normal retail for this project. The other paints were part of a lot of paints and glues purchased some time ago.
I have painted the heart shaped box and trimmed it with some wallpaper border around the outside. On the top is part of a lace doiley I bought when I was in Tweed Heads last year and met up with Elizabeth for some bargain hunting. The motif is cut out roughly and painted before gluing to the top.
The result is a pretty box which has cost me less than $3.00 so far.
I am thinking of lining the inside with silk but then again I might just paint it.
The pics are all out of order - blame blogger.
