The gold decorated box...a tutorial


The-gold-decorated-box

So last month, I went on a "must-complete-half-done-projects" mission. This was one of them.:)


I started with this sturdy mooncake box. 


I covered it with wrapping tissue from packaging for texture.


Next I adhered chipboard.


After a coat of gesso, I applied gold acrylic paint. To create a little more depth, I applied Silks acrylic glaze in bronze. I also used Ranger crackle effect accents to define to chipboard design.


The last step was to embellish! Oh yes, I might have gone a little overboard with the buttons! *lol*

P/s: Another box for my mum to store her sewing supplies!:)

I would say you definitely did not go overboard with the buttons... (when you see my next project you'll know why I'm sticking up for you like this). I LOVE this.. it's so beautiful... tissue for texture... have to remember that. I don't visit you enough here... gonna have to start doing that.

So pretty! Every time we get an especially nice box around here, I ask myself what Yvonne would make with it! Then it goes in a pile in my craft room to be forgotten. ;)

Wow! SO gorgeous, Yvonne! Loving all the rich gold on here, and love your cluster of embellies! I think the chipboard lattice adds such amazing texture, and I love the crackle paint in the center of each cut out. The old clock face really jumps out at me, too. And I totally adore that you went "overboard" with the buttoms! :D
