Pay it Forward 2011..#2

Well....I got my second Pay It Forward gift done, and once I started, it really came together quite quickly!  I think I will make one for myself!!!


The box is covered with Gesso, and then tan acrylic paint.  After it was dried, I rubbed Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain ink pads directly on the surface to give a wooden effect.
I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts again, as well as trim from A treasure Box.  the stamp is a Tim Holtz as well as the token.  The papers are from a pack I got from Costco a few years ago.
 I just love these flowers!!  They take the colour so well!!!!

The pearls in the trimming I coloured with Lumiere Paint.


 Inside the box is a round mini with half pockets.  The journalling pockets have sentiment stamps that are clear embossed.   

And what was this box??  Yup..Laughing Cow Cheese Wedges! :)

Have You Laughed Today??

Thanks for looking!!!

  3. Hello Wyn, I just love your box - I have a wee collection of cheese boxes waiting to be altered but didn't quite know what to do with them - you have given me a couple of ideas to try it so thanks. Regards, Elizabeth, WOYWWer #78
