Hi everyone! Tonya here with a fun altered box project just in time for Christmas.
I have a collection of cell phone boxes that I wanted to alter and I finally broke one out and decided to use some of my Little Birdie Craft stash to create a snowman theme gift box.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Tattered Lace Mat Chalk Acrylic Paint
- Tattered French Rose Mat Chalk Acrylic Paint
- Vanilla Sparkling Dotties
- Laser Cut Wreath
- Spring Button Paper Daisies
- White Crochet Ribbon 2cm
- Pink Ric Rac Ribbon 7mm
- Pastel Pink and White 4″ Doilies
- SmoothFoam 2″ Ball
- Mod Podge
- Beacon Adhesive Zip Dry Glue
- Mint Green Chalk Ink
- Black Dew Drops 2
- Carrot Nose
- Extra Fine Clear Glitter
- Vintage Sheet Music
- Patterned Cardstock-Sugar Plum Glisten (My Mind’s Eye)
- Holly Leaf Diecut
Before painting the SmoothFoam 2″ Ball, lightly sand any ridges, apply two coats of Tattered Lace paint and let dry.
Lightly apply a coat of mint green chalk ink over the wreath. Next use the end of a paint brush and dip dot Tattered French Rose to create berries on the wreath.
Fold the 4″ pastel pink doily in half and continue to fold until it looks like a fan. Run a bead of Zip Dry glue to the outer edge and sprinkle Vanilla Sparkling Dotties.
Cut and glue patterned cardstock to cover verbiage on the lid. Next add white 4″ doily, the pastel pink doily and wreath to the lid.
Cut two 4″ pieces of White Crochet Ribbon 2cm and tie together. This will be the snowman’s scarf.
Before adding the scarf, glue two black Dew Drops and a carrot nose to the snowman head. Next apply Mod Podge to the whole head and sprinkle fine clear glitter and let dry. Now add Pink Ric Rac Ribbon 7mm trim to each side of the lid. Wrap each side of the lace scarf around the “neck” of the snowman.
Loop and tie off cording and thread and glue under the lace scarf. Next deconstruct a mint green flower from the Spring Button Paper Daisies and roll one of the flowers to create a bud and glue both to the side of the snowman’s neck along with holly leaf diecut.
Draw a circle onto a piece of vintage sheet music, cut out, fold in half, roll to create a hat and glue together. Add a bead of adhesive around the bottom of the hat and sprinkle Vanilla Sparkling Dotties.
Glue the hat to the snowman’s head and you are finished!
Now all I need to do is add a present and it will be ready to give as a gift…or maybe I will keep it??? Who knows!
Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Hope your day is wonderful and enjoy creating!
