Vintage style trinket box and tutorial

Hello everyone
 Several people commented on a card I had made that was on the Hotshotcrafts stand at Olympia. They wanted to know how I did the vintage look so here is a very quick tutorial to show you how to do it

cut silver card to fit emboss folder


emboss

paint over embossed image with black acrylic paint




















Here is a project I made this afternoon using this same process. You can also find it on the Inspirational blog
at the end of the week.Here is the post.



 Hi Sarah here from sarahwrightdesigns.blogspot.com. I thought you might like this quick and easy tutorial that will transform a plain box blank into a vintage style box.
All you need is
  • Silver card
  • Black acrylic paint
  • old paintbrush
  • emboss folder and die cutting machine ( I used Sizzix Big Shot)
  • Sizzix dies, flowers and leaves
  • Kitchen roll or cotton wool
  • Craft mat ( optional to paint on )
Start of with a box blank

Cut strips of silver card to fit sides of box

 Emboss strips of card with an embossing folder






 Paint over card with black acrylic paint
Wipe of acrylic paint with kitchen roll or cotton wool. some of the paint will remain in the recessed parts of the embossed image


Stick pieces of card to box sides

Paint lid of box with Acrylic paint

Add the flowers and leaves that you have made, using the same process




Your box is now complete

Hugs sarah x
