Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by my 'little craftin corner' today! Grab a glass of tea (just made a fresh pitcher) and take a look around. I just finished the project I worked on last weekend at a crop and am quite pleased with it. It is for my grandkids out in CO, so please, shhhhh, don't tell them about it cause they won't be getting it until I stuff the 25 drawers with goodies and mail it to them! And that could take a while, but they don't need it until Dec anyhow!!
Here is the box, all nicely done!
The box I bought in Davenport, Iowa, at Scrapaganza. That store is packed with the most wonderful stuff!! I could spend hours in there looking at all the neat things! Anyhow....the box is by KaiserCraft and is their 25 Drawer Treasure Chest. First thing I did was put the outside together, and painted it with J's Craft Essential Christmas Green Acrylic paint. Then while it was drying I started putting all 25 of the drawers together, glueing them with Zip Dry glue. I painted them with the green paint after the glue dried. Then came the fun part...covering all 4 sides of the drawers with pretty Christmas papers from my stash. I glued those down with Modge Podge. Once they were done, I put a coat of modge podge over the outsides of the drawers. Then I started embellishing! The numbers were all painted with Golden Goddess Glimmer Glam from Tattered Angels. (I like how they turned out.) I used all kinds of ribbons, button, charms, tags and other stuff to embellish the drawers. I also used assorted stamps and black ink to stamp images on the sides and top of the box.
I really like how the box turned out and hope my grandchildren will be excited and will use it year after year!
Stop back by soon! Oh, and please take a minute to leave me some love and maybe feed my fish. They are feeling neglected!!
