Hello, hello, friends!
I’m back today sharing another one from my recent haul. Missed it? You can see everything I got right (and all the other goodies I came across but didn’t bring home) >>> here.
But just as a refresher, here is the photo of what I’ll be making over…
I’ve already made over one item, you can see it here:
Floral Paper Napkin Decoupage Box
Today I’m making over the little “snowman box”…
Now it looks like this…
I just love this napkin design. The colors are perfect.
I used just 2 napkins to do this project.
Here is the inside, how it was “before”…
I loved this paper napkin so much and thought it’d be perfect for this little box.
I started by brushing on some of the Decoupage Gel… (I sprayed it white before I did this)
Then laying the napkin over the top, front and back sections. (those got attached first)
I used a hairdryer to dry it faster. (I’m impatient like that, lol!)
Then grabbed a sanding block to lightly sand the edge to separate the loose paper and create a clean, straight edge.
This works so well.
I used a sharp knife to cut along the lid.
Yippee! Halfway done.
Now to do the sides.
Easy, because I positioned it so that I only had to trim two sides. (don’t mind the paint on my hands, I’ve been painting our hall bathroom floor)
A bit more sanding to trim those two sides and…
I decided it needed a fun pop of color for the inside and aqua was the perfect choice.
Love how this one turned out! It’s SO sweet.
OH! I finished it up by applying another coat of the Decoupage gel on top. Once it was dry I took a few photos of it for you.
Isn’t that paper napkin so pretty? They are so much fun to play with…..
I just love it.
And the inside…
Perfect color, right?
Can be used for just about anything. A great little keepsake box.
PIN it to save it!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! We will be busy, busy working on the beach condo this weekend! Stay tuned over on Instagram (stories), I might share a bit.
Hop back over on Tuesday, I’ll be sharing this one from the haul…all made up for spring, yay!
