There's nothing like doing a spot of DIY on a cold and rainy day. I was bitten by the creativity bug after reading the lovely Caroline's DIY post which you can read here, she created this amazing good things bunny jar, You basically write a lil note on a piece of paper of all the good things that have happened and you keep em all in the jar and once it's the end of the year you go through all the notes and reflect on all of the good times, good idea non?
I was inspired to make one too but in form of a box <3 So let's see the steps on how to make your very own keepsake box.
I decided to use an old gift box, I didn't want to throw it away, I just knew it would come in use somehow ^^
Using some acrylic paints and an old cosmetic sponge, I basically covered the whole box using a dabbing motion and after completion it became a beautiful gradient wash of colours - I chose blue and pink since I am loving those colours at the moment.
Time for the fun part... decorating! Using an unloved flower ornament, gems, stickers and sequins,I basically glued and positioned the decor items wherever I wanted. The flower piece looked great as a centre piece and I placed the gems and sequins sparingly. The box started to take shape as well as looking super pretty. I also sprinkled some glitter onto the flower as a finishing touch but you can really do anything, for me this would of been incomplete without some glitter!
