This was a cat food box

Morning everyone, thank you for taking the time to visit. A big warm welcome to my new followers, thank you for joining us on my crafty journey.

This year has been so exciting so far, with joining two impressive Design Teams and of course continuing with the ones I was already on. There have also been Guest appearances and I was also a featured artist on an online mag. I have also been fortunate to teach workshops and Demo days at Birds in the Barn. I  feel I have been so lucky, but much of this is due to You! my followers. So a huge big thank you to you all.

Now onto my box.

I love these little boxes and have kept a few as I knew they would come in handy. They are very sturdy and have a proper lid, which for this I cut off. I actually cut the box down as it was a little too high for what I wanted. 


Next I gave it two coats of Concrete Fresco Paint from Paper Artsy. Inside I sprayed two Media Mist from DecoArt just for quick coverage.


I played for a while with different trims etc to see what I wanted. It did start out quite girly but that changed as I progressed.

I am in love with the one of the new stamp plates from Paper Artsy and thought this would look great on my box



Using Blue Glass and Hey Pesto Fresco paint, both from paper Artsy I completed the decoration. I added some washi tape to the top edge to neaten it.

Here are some finished pictures 




It was the perfect size to hold all my paint pens. So think twice before throwing things away! See you soon Debs xxx


  1. Brilliant Debs, I too always have loads of those boxes but sadly just bung them in recycling most times! Hmm might save the next one to make a Distress spray holder ;)
