Altered Balsa Box
And how I did it...
Then cut off the useless elastic tie. I guess it's not totally useless because it holds the knob attacher thingy but it's really ugly....again (IMO). My opinion does matter. To me.
Stamp Gang Star burst in Golden Sleigh Bells. I purposely didn't saturate the box completely in black acrylic paint so the gold shimmer of the spray shined and enhanced the wood grain detail of the box.
It was actually an unplanned effect but I just thought it sounded better that way.
I picked out metal embellishments along with paper flowers that I sprayed with the same Lindy Stamp Gang spray. I added a bit of ribbon, hot glued it all on and got this...
It happens...kinda like those two that ended up in the trash.
