Tilda themed Book box

Hi friends ,
Year 2014 has been an amazing & super creative for me with all    the wonderful design team members at Crafter's Corner as we learnt & had so much fun together. Love you all!
I would like to thank Shalini for this amazing opportunity. She is indeed our Craft Fairy, making our crafty wishes come true. Crafters Corner has not only helped me become a better crafter but also introduced me to all you lovely people who follow our blog and motivate us with your comments...thanks a tonn guys!!!!

This is my last post for 2014 and it had to be my favorite Tilda 😉

I had a book box which needed some makeover and who else than Tilda can help me jazz it up!!!
It's a super simple project which can be made with items from your stash.
So let's begin ...

I painted the box with gesso and allowed it to dry completely.

With the help of tacky tape I sticked thin strips of glitter paper to give it a finished look.
Selected few patterned paper from the gorgeous The dear Jane Stack.
Distressed the edges with vintage photo.

I adhered the paper pieces with the help of this giant tacky tape (24mm) which made the project super duper strong .

Now begins the decoration .....the part I enjoy most ...
The pictures will say it all and I will do the explanations where ever needed.

The frame is cut with Silhouette Cameo and coated it with two layers of clear embossing powder.

That's all from my end friends ...
I hope u liked this post and will give it a try.
Wish u all a very happy and prosperous new year and may all your crafty dreams come true !!!

lots of love.....

  1. So beautiful !
    Arjita...a small are going to cover it completely with pattern paper then why use Gesso?

    1. Sonia I cud have totally avoided the gesso, but the box was old and weathered so to make it more desirable I coated it with gesso.... Lol!!!

    2. Thank you for clearing my doubt Arjita. Gesso and me dont get along and I couldnt really fathom why so many crafters sing its praise!


We would love to hear from you !
