Christmas Keepsake Box

Hello there everyone..

Sarah here with you today with my regular Tuesday slot on the blog.

Did you all have a good weekend?   Did anyone manage along to any of the Indigoblu Demonstrations across the country on Saturday?

I was demonstrating at Craft World in Glasgow, and what a great day it was!… the store is HUGE and very well stocked with just about every craft item you could possibly think of and more 🙂

My project this week is a heart shaped keepsake box..

Xmas Trinket #1


I used a paper mache heart shaped box with lid, and applied a couple of layers of  White Gee-soo Good Gesso, and gave all the edges a touch of distress ink…

Xmas Trinket #2


Along the bottom edge of the box I ran some 1/8″ double sided tape then gave it a little dusting with Eton Mess Megaflake.. the gorgeous crochet lace trim around the top is available from the Indigoblu Shop, I picked up a some when I visited HQ in August, it was wrapped around a lovely wooden cotton reel.

Xmas Trinket #3


I decorated the top with a felt snowflake, then layered a couple of paper flower blooms together, these were spritzed with Vodka Martini Acrylic paint made up into a little spray bottle, the edges of the flower petals were dabbed with flitterglu and sprinkled with some vintage mica flakes.

Xmas Trinket #4

The wooden cotton reel base was covered with flitterglu applied directly with the phat foam, and smothered with Eton Mess Megaflake, the above picture is a side view of the trinket box

Xmas Trinket #5


This is the back of the box, or the top of the heart 🙂 I love how the megaflake shines in contrast with the matte finish of the white gee-soo good Gesso

Supplies used :-

  • White Gee=Soo Good Gesso
  • Flitterglu Starter Kit
  • Eton Mess Megaflake
  • Vodka Martini Metallic Paint
  • Spray Bottle

Xmas Trinket #6


And the front view… these little trinket boxes would made gorgeous gifts for your guests around the dinner table filled with yummy mints in shiny wrappers 🙂

Xmas Trinket #7


I hope you enjoyed the project today, and I will be back again next Tuesday..

Until then, I hope you have a wonderful crafty time this week, and remember to check back in to the blog for more lovely projects from the rest of the Design Team
