Today I have a box that I altered for my sister Dora using the Sophie cartridge. I thought it would be great to put jewelry or trinkets in. I bought the box at Hobby Lobby in the clearance section. It started out red with a rooster on the side. She is a vegetarian, so I did not think she would appreciate the chicken on the side (that joke is for her...she reads my blog).
I painted the box first using acrylic paint. I believe the shade was called bamboo. Then I added the leaves using modge podge. The layers were done individually and saturated completely with the modge podge, so there would not be any bubbles. The ribbon was added with a hot glue gun.
|I cut the leaves out at 5".|
|The doiley was cut out at 5".|
|The 'D' was cut using the American Alphabet cartridge at 4".|
