Add texture & dimension to a gift box with paints & mediums

For this week's episode of Cool2Craft, I decorated a paper maché gift box using a variety of mixed media techniques.

I just love shades of gold, copper and bronze together. Plus it's so fun to blend and layer rough and smooth textures - paper, sand, metal, acrylic, and glass.

Click here for my project instructions and video tutorial...have fun!

Here's a shopping list to get you started:

Texture medium
Metallic inks
Paper maché box
Podgeables crown
Striping brush
Metallic tape
Alcohol inks
Tacky glue
Rusty tin stars

    1. Thanks - I think it's the kind of gift box you just put a few cookies in for that same reason. :-)
