Altered Wood Box

Hi everyone! I am here today sharing my Wednesday inspiration for Heartfelt Creations "Hex Window Box"  as I sit in the hospital waiting for surgery.  So these fun lilacs definitely will brighten the day.  Who can pass up the gorgeous purple of these beauties right?!!

 These lilacs were so easy to make using the mold all these beauties in less than 30 min.  what took the most time was the frosting powder which gives it that extra glow.
 I fussy cut the window from one of the sheets of patterned paper and used that as the main piece for my box.  I then surrounded the window with the lilacs and fussy cut bird and leaves.  Simply an amazing set of colors and images!
I hope everyone enjoyed my post and thanks so much for stopping by!

Cover your hex wood box using your patterned paper collection.  Use your kraft knife to trim excess edges.  Once done using your dauber take some wilted violet distress oxide ink and ink the box edges.


Now take your birdcage die and diecut the cage in white and silver mirror board.  Adhere the two pieces to one another slightly staggered over the other putting the white over the silver.  Now hot glue the piece to the top of the wood box as if was hanging from the ceiling.  Fussy cut the bird and some leaves as well as add some lilacs.


To create the flowers.  Use your lilac  mold and diecut over 30 lilacs.  Add your lilacs to the mold and spritz with a touch of water before running it through your diecut machine.  Once complete ink your flowers with the oxide inks and add some frosting powder to each lilac edge.  Now fussy cut 10 leaves from the sheet of paper add a touch of stazon cactus green ink to the edge for added  depth.

For the centerpiece you will fussy cut the window from one of the sheets of patterned paper.  Then arrange your  lilacs around the window adding your fussy cut leaves.

Finish if off by adding one of the pre-printed sentiments from your sheet of paper.
