Quick and easy vintage trinket box

 Hi Sarah here from I thought you might like this quick and easy tutorial that will transform a plain box blank into a vintage style box.
All you need is
  • Silver card
  • Black acrylic paint
  • old paintbrush
  • emboss folder and die cutting machine ( I used Sizzix Big Shot)
  • Sizzix dies, flowers and leaves
  • Kitchen roll or cotton wool
  • Craft mat ( optional to paint on )
Start of with a box blank

Cut strips of silver card to fit sides of box

 Emboss strips of card with an embossing folder

 Paint over card with black acrylic paint

Wipe of acrylic paint with kitchen roll or cotton wool. some of the paint will remain in the recessed parts of the embossed image

Stick pieces of card to box sides

Paint lid of box with Acrylic paint

Add the flowers and leaves that you have made, using the same process

Your box is now complete

Hugs sarah x
