Easter Cake Toppers

Hello friends! Today I, Inna Brigantina, will share my inspiration with you.
I suggest making light and fast Easter cake toppers.
Even children can make them and it is a great way to inspire them to be creative.
For making the flowers, I used mulberry paper and metal thin cut dies.

The cute bunnies from the sticker pack are a wonderful addition for toppers.

As the base, I took paper elements from my favorite set of paper Boho Dreams 

 I have prepared a short video with the process for you.

I hope, friends, that you are in good health and good mood!
Thank you for being with me today!

Altered Mini Trinket Chest

Hello Little Birdie fans, hope you all are doing great and enjoying spring.

Today I am on the blog to show a step by step tutorial on how I altered an old box into a spring inspired mini trinket chest.

I had an old box in my stash which I had bought from a flea market during one of my trips to Singapore. I gave the box a thick coat of white gesso in and out.

I realized the box was chipping in many places so I added Mont Marte modelling paste with a knife to fill the gaps in the wood to make it more sturdy.

To cover the box from outside, I chose a decoupage paper Joyful Wings which had birds as motif. I cut the paper as per the measurement of the box into different size strips and adhered them with the help of Little Birdie Deco Magic glue – Matt.

The surface of the box was a little uneven so I decided to cover the top with pattern paper strips from my stash.

I roughly tore the pattern paper into strips with my hands and distressed the edges with Vintage photo distress ink. I added 2 layers of strips on both the sides of the top leaving the birds motif from my decoupage paper peeping out through the strips

I decorated the top of my box with Little Birdie flowers and leaves from Ocean Mist- Serenade, Agnes- Birds and Berries collection, a cute floral bouquet in pink from the celebrate Life collection, Buds from Roaslind -Song of the Sea, some laces from my stash, ephemera from Purple Passion collection and a chipboard bulb hanging on the edge.

I also added couple of mini wooden alphabets on both sides of my mini trunk. I added Patina Glaze metallic wax with my fingers to the metal lock on the box to go with the colour scheme . I coloured the inside of my chest with multi-surface archival paint Pink Swirl.

I hope you like my project and give it a try.

Till next time.
