Thank You .....


A Thank You Gift ....

Take a box

  
Using gesso completely paint the box inside and out and leave to dry.


I used a leaf shaped perforated piece of wrapping to make a stencil and using Oak House Studio Ink Pads in Green as Grass and Valentine
I firstly inked through the holes which I had taped into place using the green ink pad and a blender, take off the paper but just put it to one side whilst you wait for the ink to dry. No replace the stencil obviously not lining up with the previous inking but don't worry if you do get an overlap now using the red ink repeat the process. When Dry I used a spray glitter to add a bit of bling.


On the inside of the box repeat the colour scheme but just randomly ink with bubble wrap to add colour to the inside of the box. 


Line with tissue paper of choice, I like to scrunch mine up but you may choose to fold yours or to shred it. 


Finally fill with your gift and either add a tag or wrap and make a card to go to the recipient. 

This was made for the Lovely Lynnda Worsnop who gave me my first time experience of working on a Design Team. I have to say I have found it not only a very enjoyable time but I have learned lots and have come to love all the products in the Oak House Studio range. 

Thank you Lynnda xx


Thank you for looking 
love Doreen
