Christmas Gift Box

Hello. It´s Denisa  sharing my latest box makeover. Christmas is reaching for the doorhandle and it´s high time to get all Santa´s presents wrapped in a magic. Here´s how to:


First I covered the lid in white gesso and gauze. You do not need a glue. The gesso holds it perfectly. When dry I added a bit of colour to emphasize the texture. I used Gelatos®, sprays and water.

After drying I did some random stamping using Stamper's Big Brush Pen. Then I inked the edges with Gelatos® on my fingers. Love to feel Gelatos® on my skin :)

Next I began to build my cluster. I glued on tiny bits of papers, chevron washi tape, printed fabric, bronze flakes, white beads and pearls. As the focal point I went for a resin frame that I painted blue.

I used a turquoise wire to wrap around small stars and cones. Next I formed a wreath and attached it to the cluster. I added the sparkling snowflake and the sentiment. Just a few splashes of gold and you´re done!

OK, I have given up trying to find out who won the November Xyron Faber Castell blog hop. Can you please tell us who won? I know you said it would go up on the blogs, but I cannot for the life of me find the Xyron blog and I can't spot anything on your blog about it. I've been tearing my hair out trying to find this. Do people get a prize if they find it? LOL! I have asked before but no one responded.

I'm with Debbie! Guess I am not the only one who kept looking and looking and never found it. Perhaps only the winner was notified, instead of announcing was mentioned. :)
