Now unfortunately the first pictures did not turn out on my camera so I apologize for that. I will however, explain the process before I got to the stage of the first photo here.
An old cardboard make up box was used, but this would work on any box. I first covered in gesso. Then covered in scrunched up aluminium foil and left to dry. I used tacky glue to adhere it to the box. I then added a layer of tissue with tacky glue and left it to dry. A coat of gesso again to cover.
I found some chipboard and wooden shapes some fabric silk puffy stars from my stash and I got to work arranging them how I wanted them, then adhered everything with tacky glue and left to dry.
Next, I took some lovely craft lace (mine was peach colored) any colour would be ok. I adhered with tacky glue to all the sides and left to dry.
The next stage was to paint the box which is not as easy as it looks. I covered the whole box in black acrylic paint, where the lace is the white showed through. So I added some black paint and water to a small spray bottle and using an old cardboard box to catch the stray paint splatter. I sprayed directly on to the lace until fully covered (in hindsight, black lace and black Gesso would be the best way).
When the paint was fully dry I wanted to get a pink and silver metallic look. I used the pink, red and silver metallic rub-ons.
I rubbed the wax well into the pieces and buffed to shine, I added some teeny tiny pink pearls to finish, and the box was complete. My dear daughter in law loved it so the box now has a new home.
