Think outside the box

Hi, Hermine here again. I love collecting things and always want to make the storage boxes look great. So I altered an old sigare box and turned it into a colourful one.

step 1: Slice a few millimeters from different colours of the Sakura of America Cray-Pas Expressionist Oil Pastels and put them in a row on the box. Then carefully let them melt using the heattool. Don;t keep the heattool to close at first because you will blow away the pieces of crayon. Starting at the back of the box working yoyur way to the front, I love to show the Original box so I didn;t cover up the front. Take the black crayon and heat with the heattool so it starts to drip, do the same with the white one.
step 2: take a piece of Kromecote and cut them the size of the side panels. Stamp Worn Clockface 19093 with Stazon Black. Mask this and stamp on the left and richt hand side the small wasp 19011, the Large Bee 19013 and the large wasp 19014. Sp;onge the sides with Aidorndack, remove the mask and color the worn clockface with Adirondack and a water brush. Make some white accents with sharpie pen and glue the panels on both sides.
step 3: take some black and white striped fabrix tape and put it on both sides of the lid.
