Fairy Lili Box

Hello it's Kerry here & today I am going to show you a little wooden Box I have made for my second daughter Charlotte.
I have used Fairy Lili for this box. I love to used Inky Impressions stamps on things other than just cards.
Above is the lid of the box, Charlotte picked the image & the colours for this little box. Her biggest wish was that it was Pink. So I think we covered the pink.
So to cover the box we painted it hot pink than when dry gave it a coat of white. Than when that was dry Charlotte & I sanded it back to give it a washed look.
Above is a side view of the box & as you can see I put a strip of pearl around the bottom of the box. I also put the pearls around the top of the lid.
To colour Lili I used my copic markers after colouring her I sparkled the wings.
After I glued her to the box I place some pink pearls around her, I than covered the lid with Glossy accents to protect Lili & give the lid a nice shine. I did not cover the wings because of the Sparkle & the pearls are covered half way up to stop them coming off.
I have include Charlotte name on the box so it would be something extra special for her. It now sits very proudly on her bedside table.

This box was so easy to make. All you need is :

1x Plain wooden box from any craft store
rub on letters
glossy accents
1x Inky Impressions Stamp
& some time

So I hope Charlotte's Box has inspired you to make something using a Inky Impressions Stamp.
If you don't have a stamp why don't pop over now & pick one up Here.

All the best
