Presents with love

I really don’t have time to do anything more complex now, but I love doing creative projects. Like renovating old furniture, painting a wall, or doing a small artsy gift for a loved one. I decided to share this one with you.

I bought this jewellery box in 1 eur store (like a Poundland or Dollar shop) and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it! Using things I have on hand anyway and some creativity I manage to do just the perfect gift for one very special little girl.

First I sanded the edges a little- such a pro like me with no sand paper but many nail files – and it worked just as well ( have to get a tad creative there already!)

Than I paper-mache dusty pink tissue paper on in a few layers. I wanted some colour but not all too much. I used half and half water and glue (the clear one).

Than next I cut out this snowflake that I found on my Christmas wrapping paper. It looks so pretty and soft almost like a lace, plus pink is her favourite colour and I happen to know that she adores Frozen – so no brainer!

I glued the snowflake on top and than I paper – matched the top as well. I wanted to add some glitter so I dusted the inside of the cover with silver glitter and I used lots of glue so the glitter wasΒ nicely secure and will not go anywhere while the jewellery box will be used. Than the rest around I painted with white colour.

I love a little contrast and you know how lovely are bags that have a really nice lining. I wanted to get that look, so I used a spotty tissue paper that goes really well with pink and I paper -mached it inside the box. I think it look really well, and it completed the look I was going for – cute and girly but also nice and not too tacky.

I bought some nice plastic rings and hair clips. I can never resist buying those, especially for little girls and I added them inside.
Than all I had to do is wrap it nicely and give it! The best part!

I really enjoyed doing this project, and I hope to do a few more in the near future. Maybe I will post another one I did a while ago. If you are in to things like this ( I am so so much!) than I would love to hear from you, and if you have any other ideas, that would be nice to hear as well!

Until then – don’t forget – sharing is caring!

P.S.: By now the gift was given and she loved it so so much! 😍
