Greetings friends! Hope you've had a great week of inspiration from the design team for LESSology Challenge #39: Fluttering Butterflies. How about one last one before we head into the weekend? Design team member Lizzy Hill has a beautiful upcycled box to share!
Hello my scrappy friends! Lizzy with you today to share an OTP project this month. Featuring butterflies.
Now, I'm not much of a butterfly or flower person - but I'm slowly getting my study to look a little Vintage French as I alter my containers. So, on a small shelf I have these containers:
I decided to upcycle the GREEN BOX - this is where I keep my stamps. Here's what it looked like when I'd finished:
I think it looks SLIGHTLY better, LOL ----don't you??!!!!!!
It took quite some work. I'm gonna post the photos - & try not write too much! Here we go!!!
This created a 'basis' for the box....next I decorated:)
Distress ink sponged on....the butterflies stamped with STAZ ON [water resistant ink]
Then I added some die cut butterflies & rubbed in some SILKS ACRYLIC GLAZE in gold for a nice sheen.....Finally a coat of Acrylic Glaze to protect it all!
The finished stamp box:
I added some butterflies inside as well:)
And finally, the front side:
I hope you've gotten some ideas on 'upcycling' that you can also use from this step by step.
And I didn't write too much ---- v proud of myself!!!
Any questions, just ask - thanks for looking & hoping to see your AMAZING butterfly creations:):)
Happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
Better ?? ts looking fab Lizzy !
What a fantastic upcycling ..I love the end result so much ..it looks gorgeous !!
Definitely looks better after the makeover, but when you said you kept your stamps in it. Guess which kind of stamps I thought of? Not the kind you lick and out on an envelope that is for sure!
Wow wow wowwwwwww! What a makeover!! This turned out AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!
Awesome upcycling Lizzy! It looks fab!
Gorgeous and I'm with the other Lizzy, I immediately thought of clear acrylics.
