I've been on a short trip to Oahu for a few days so I haven't posted in a while. Upon my return to my craft room, I immediately began whitewashing (with watered-down white acrylic paint) one of the Sierra Pacific kraft paper boxes. Once the inside and outside of the box was dry it was simple work to cut and tape (Merikan double stick) pieces of Martha Stewart double-sided card stock (from the 'Stitched' pad) to the box (leaving small borders around each piece of printed card stock). All the box flaps are magnetized to close with a click, but I wanted to make a pull of some sort to make opening the box easier. My solution was to hang a MS tag (stamped with 'Friends Forever') from a whitewashed wooden spool (extra twine was wrapped around the spool). This tag can now be pulled to open the front flap. (Oh, the strawberries on the tag were carefully removed and re-glued so the tag could be hung vertically.) A Martha Stewart bird sticker with a flower button were added for more visual interest. Because the light yellow color of the bird sticker was not quite right I added some color with a blue watercolor pencil. The hanging tag color was also changed with a yellow color pencil so it wasn't so white. I am pleased with the outcome of this project and I think the whitewashed interior of the box complements the vintage-fabric look of the card stock. This easy-to-make box will make a perfect holder for gift tags or sewing notions and all the supplies were purchased at a reasonable cost from Ben Franklin Crafts. Have a happy crafting weekend!
