DIY Watch Box

Hello Folks! This is Jinal Savla and I am back with a inspirational project for you. Hope all of you are staying safe.

By now, most of you may know that I am a mixed media artist. However at times, I take pleasure to decoupage objects. After a long thought, I decided why not create a tutorial of my best selling product. A watch box, that also doubles up as a jewellery box. To begin with, I took a Watch box.

Unscrew the hinges and then sand it with sandpaper or a sanding block. Make sure your surface is smooth.
Apply a thin coat of gesso (You can skip this step). Then, to achieve this gradient apply the lightest colour first. Here I started with Snow Acrylic Matte chalk paint followed by French Rose and finally Bubble Gum chalk paint. Make sure you merge them well.
Take any decoupage paper or tissue (I used rice-paper). Apply a thin layer of Little Birdie’s Deco Magic glossy decoupage glue on top of the box. Place the desired design of decoupage paper where you have applied glue and slowly dab with a dry sponge making sure there are no air bubbles left behind.
In this step, I have used Little Birdie Stencil. Applied little Birdie craft glue and then used reactive foil to achieve the shiny- golden effect.
finally distressed the edges it using Little Birdie pigment ink pad. To seal it, applied two coats of varnish.
Tada! There you go.. our watch box is ready!
I love how this gradient compliments the design…hope you guys like it too…

You can use this technique on any surface. Do try and share it with us on our FB page “Little Birdie Crafts Café”.

Pretty Card Ideas

Hi creative folks, Anushree here!

Today, I am sharing two cards that I made using some beautiful stencils, stamps, inks and other products from Little Birdie Crafts collection. Take a quick look at the cards…what do you think?

I really enjoyed making these two cards and actually ended up making few more for my family members and friends. Let me share the process of making each one. Let’s start with the first card…

I started with a 5*7 inches bright white card stock. Next, I did some ink blending on the base in yellow and purple colour from the ink pads using a blending brush.

I stenciled some feathers using a stencil and added pink ink with a blending brush. Next, I splattered some paint using water and ink.

I die cut banners from gold card stock and the sentiment ‘Hello’ using alphabet dies on a pink card stock. I stamped ‘Sunshine’ using black ink.

To complete my card, I adhered some red blings on my card.

To know the process of making this card in a better way, I have a video tutorial for you which I will share at the end of the post. I have discussed all materials used along with the techniques I used for making this card.

Now, onto my second card…

To make this card, I have used the ‘Oval Tag’ die and ‘Watercolor Floral Ballet’ paper pack on a white cardstock. I cut out three different shapes using both the dies mentioned above and stacked them using double sided tapes.

I inked the background with some yellow ink and a blending brush in the same oval shape but with a slightly bigger circumference than the tags.

After attaching the tags on the card, I added a bow and some enamel dots.

I also added some pretty handmade flowers to my card. Lastly, I added a sentiment from the stamp set using black ink and some hearts using pink ink.

Here is a complete video tutorial of both the cards. Do watch it and leave your love in the comments . You can also leave queries if you have any on the blog or in the video. I would surely answer them all.

Here is a picture of all products used along with the links below

Hope you enjoyed both the cards and will give a try yourself.

See you all soon next month with more fun projects, till then take care and stay safe.

Hugs,Anushree
