I've always been a sucker for pretty packaging.
"Yes. It's a limited edition...check out this beautiful clasp. There are drawers here and there's this ..." replied the salesperson.
You know he has me....hook line, and sinker. Holiday shopping is especially perilous since it's designed to entice weak-willed souls like me. Who can resist all the pretty packaging right? *winks*
I can make packaging pretty. And one-of-a-kind is limited edition right? *high fives all around*
I started with this sturdy Kikki K box and some DCWV patterned paper.
After a little measuring and cutting, I run the patterned paper through my Xyron 9" Creative Station for an even layer of adhesive.
Next I adhered lace to the box with some matte gel medium. Matte gel medium usually dries clear but this patterned paper was coated with a sheen finish so I could see the adhesive marks even after it dried.
So I went in with some Golden Glass Bead Gel to "cover up" the adhesive marks. And I loved the end result because it added a subtle glitter effect. :)
The last step was to embellish! My mum's friend passed me a ton of this purple tulle and the silk flowers were old napkin holders.
I loved how this turned out.
It was perfect for some cute stuff I bought for my mum's friend who's expecting a baby girl.:)
