Bo Bunny has sooo many gorgeous rub-ons but as I was going to make a little treasure box for my son who is always collecting all sorts of little "treasures", I decided to use the rub-ons from the Zoology line which are just perfect for him! I started off by giving the box a couple of coats of everyday emulsion paints from one of those little tester pots.
Once that was done I inked all the edges and corners using Ranger Distress Inks.
I used a sort of Modge Podge ( I make my own using PVA glue, a small amount of water and a few drops of glossy accents) to coat the sides and then added some pieces of the Zoology papers with the glue and then adding another coat over the top and one more once that was dried. I used the rub-ons on the sides and top of the lid as well as some alphabet stickers and then sealed those all in with the Modge Podge too. I even used some of the Modge Podge on the leaves I cut out to make them more hard wearing too, which is definitely needed with those little fingers!
Lastly I just added a few more embelishments and some pewter liquid pearls around the edges of the lid, and this is the finished box :)
I had to add that coin brad because Christopher was just oohing and aahing over them when he saw them! As I said he just loves "treasures" :)
Well Christopher just loves it and was so excited when he saw his name on it and seeing that happiness over something you have made for someone is always the best feeling in the world! :)
