Graphic 45 Trinket Box for Cutter's Creek

Today I am showing off a paper mache ticket box I decorated using the Le Cirque Double-Sided Paper Pad from Graphic 45. I discovered that Mod Podge works perfecting for attaching the paper and bringing out bright colors. Please contact Kim if you would like to order some Mod Podge.

Here are the directions on how I decorated this box.

First, I measured the sides of the boxes height and then I cut out the strip and played with wrapping it around the box to show different scenes. I decided I liked the elephants on one side and words on the other so I brought the paper together in the middle of the heart and made sure it overlapped some before cutting.  It's important to have it over lap in case you cut it shorter than you thought you were.

Once I had the paper Mod Podged on, I went back and trimmed it down to the edge of the top of the box using my utility knife and scissors.

Then on to the top....

I centered my elephant in the middle of the box and trimmed around the outside edge using my utility knife and scissors and then I Mod Podged the paper on.

I did the same thing with the trim for the top sides that I did with the bottom sides of the box.

I then went back and inked all the edges and added a touch of ink to the paper on the top and sides as well using the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad-Tea Dye.

I added some of the Tattered Angle's glimmer mist and a flower I made using the Cricut Cartridge Flower Shoppe. I attached the flower using Scotch quick dry adhesive.

There you have it in a nutshell, an easy project that is fun to do and doesn't take a lot of time. I even let my 8 year old decorate her own box using my paper scraps.

Have a great day! Jearise
