A super quick decorated box [minus the drying time...]*winks*


A-super-quick-decorated-box

You know how excited I get when I get hold of a nice sturdy packaging box that I can put my own spin on...


I started with this lovely black packaging box [In case you were curious, I bought myself a silk pillowcase...it's supposed to prevent wrinkles and lines on your face - I reckon I should start before I get any wrinkles, right? *winks*]....


I applied Liquitex black lava medium [which dries glossy] with The Crafter's Workshop stencil...and just waited for it to dry naturally [It's best to let your mediums dry naturally instead of using a heat gun. You never know how toxic the fumes can get.].


Once it was dry, I adhered the blooms and leaves with a hot glue gun. And there you have it: a super quick decorated box! It doesn't get easier than this! :)
