Home Made


'Home made/hand made gifts', is the new challenge theme at Try it on Tuesdays.
Christmas is fast approaching and what nicer to give to a family member or friend,  is something that you have made personally for them with love.



This is the box I chose to alter.
To begin with it had a few coats of acrylic paint to cover all the surfaces.

Next came a bit of random stamping, before I delved in my boxes to decorate the top, adding a lace trim around the sides.
So what's inside, well as one of the additions on the box is an advert for Chocolate. You can no doubt guess whats inside.

Please pop over to TioT's and see what we all made.

Thank you for stopping by, the comments you leave me are always appreciated.

  9. Your revamped box looks just as yummy as Chocolate Poulain, not had any for many a year other than as a hot drinking chocolate!
