Today I am sharing a tiny gift box that I altered. I love to re-purpose things and I am always asking my friends to save cartons and other fun stuff for me. This past week end one of my friends gifted me with a large bag full of tiny and fun shaped boxes which really made me smile! I had almost as much fun picking one out as I did altering it.
I adore the teeny tiny diamond shaped confetti from UmWow. They are so cute and so perfectly cut out! Just fun to play with!!
And speaking of adorable, I love using the little girl stamped image from the Susan K. Weckesser/Unity stamp set, Grandma's Needlepoint . I really appreciate images that give me hands to place things in, like flowers or heart shaped balloons. And I love to pop dot up images whenever I can using Helmar's Liquid Scrap Dots, this adhesive is seriously one of my favs!
I took the larger UmWow heart and covered it with the Sakura Gelly Roll glaze pen first and then coated it with Ranger's Glam Pink stickles and the smaller heart stacked on top is generously flocked with Stampendous Pixie Pink Fun Flock. I think it's always nice to have something soft and fuzzy to touch!!
This little box has a lotta' Wow factor because of all the shine. The UmWow diamond confetti was attached to the sides of the box using Ranger's Glossy Accents which gives it a patent leather sheen.
My last touch was writing the word "smile" with the Signo white pen on top one of the small UmWow Poloroid Mash frames which is also covered with the glaze pen. I used the balloon's string as the letter "L" in smile. I think it's a nice touch, kinda' fun!
This little box just makes me grin, I hope it brings a smile to your face too!
