Snowflake Jewels Mould Christmas Box
Okay, let’s take a look at this crafty little makeover I did this month.
Here is what it looked like when I found it. A simple little “bike” box.
MATERIALS LIST – SNOWFLAKE JEWELS MOULD CHRISTMAS BOX
- Picket Fence Paint
- Highlands Paint
- Casting Resin
- Snowflake Jewels Mould
- Pearl Metallic Paint
- Glue Gun
Prefer to shop on Etsy? I have an Etsy shop also, here!
Paint The Box
Okay, and so if you haven’t guessed yet, I’m using the “Snowflake Jewels” mould for this project.
(you can find it and all the other projects I used linked in the pink box above)
Make The Snowflakes
I used our Casting Resin with the mould to make the snowflakes for this project.
As you can see below, I’ve already painted the box white on the outside and red on the inside.
Simply measure out the two parts and mix them together. (make sure you have exactly equal parts)
Then stir for 30 seconds.
Pour into the molds and wait 5-10 minutes.
You can see the bottom left I just poured in. (and the bottom right where it was setting up as I was pouring it…oops!)
Kind of fun to watch it change.
Isn’t that neat??
Peel it right on out of the mold and done!
Now, the cool thing about these is they are somewhat flexible when you first get them out. So you can shape them to your project.
Say, for example, you want to attach it to a round bottle. You can shape it to the bottle before it fully hardens.
I didn’t need to do that because I needed them flat for my purposes.
You can see this one has some excess. It’s actually very easy to just break off since it’s so thin in those areas.
Here’s the big white one lying on the box.
Paint And Glitter The Snowflakes
I painted them using the metallic paint (linked above!) and sprinkled some very fine shimmer glitter on them before they dried.
Attach Snowflakes With Glue Gun
Once they were dry, I simply hot-glued them onto the box using my glue gun.
Apply Vinyl Graphic To The Inside
Oh but wait, there is a surprise when you open the box!
I had a little sparkly silver vinyl so cut this out on my Silhouette to put in the inside of the box.
Want this free graphic/printable?
Along with the little graphic surprise, I also decided to put a few snowflakes inside the lid too.
Aren’t they so pretty? I wish you could see the sparkles better!
I love how it turned out. The snowflakes are so pretty.
It’s a great little box to put a gift inside or even just use it in your decor. A box for Christmas cards is a great idea too!
And here’s a shot with a Santa sweater I got for Piper girl. Hee hee, isn’t that the cutest thing ever?
I’ll have to share a photo with her in it soon!
Have you used these Decor Moulds before? Or the Casting Resin?? I just love them and how super simple it was!
