How it's Done
This box has a deep recess and a 4 x 4 canvas that fits inside, I will use this for a separate project and take advantage of the recess to do some decoupage on the lid.
To prepare the box for covering, ink the edges with the white Prima chalk pad, (I inked the corners as I was going to do panels but changed my mind and decided to do a wrap around instead).
Next rub a little of the gold gilding wax over the top edges.
Inside the box lid I decorated with a panel made using core'dinations, gilding wax and the 'O Christmas Tree' Die
To cover the outer edges of the box base I cut the 'Ho Ho Ho' panels from sheets of 12 x 12 and ran them through the Xyron 5" Creative Station. Wrap the strips around the outside edge of the box base.
Repeat for the outside edges of the lid.
To cover the lid and create the decoupage I cut out the image from a 12 x 12 sheet, ran it through the Xyron 9" Creative Station.
panel in place on the lid
Cut out the elements from the stack
Using the foam pads from the Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit prepare the cut out elements ready to decoupage.
Layer onto the base and tah dah! , the lid now had dimension
Cover the interior with more paper from the stack and add the die'cut panel to the inside of the lid and a topper from the pad.
Add the gems to the die cut holes
Spray the Spray and Sparkle over the decoupage and add a bow made from the twine. I used a gingerbread man button to the bow.
To finish wrap some twine around the outside and tie in a bow.
