The box was packaging from some biscuits and the perfect size for the candle so that sparked the idea to use it and, as the top and bottom are plain, I only need to decorate the sides with something that would match the colour.
I set to work with a large 30 x 30 cm sheet of paper so that I could choose the part I wanted to use afterwards and sprayed it with Brusho Acrylic Mist sprays in Turquoise and Violet and Violet Shimmer.
Having then cut a band the same height as my box, I sponged a stencilled pattern and round the edges of the paper with Eco acrylic paint in Prussian Blue.
I used Aztec metallic paint in Antique silver to stencil over the pattern for a shimmery accent.
The band was finished with randomly stamping some crackle and text patterns over the paint. This was then stuck on to the box.
I sprayed some tissue paper with the Violet Shimmer spray to wrap the candle in.
The original sheet was used to diecut a tag on an area which was mostly blue, which I stamped with the text. Then, for contrast, I chose a violet area to stamp and cut a butterfly. I think these finish off the box nicely.
So, hoping my sister likes her gift, I'm off to buy more biscuits: I easily have enough paper left to decorate another box so it's the perfect excuse!
Thanks for stopping by.
