Alice - jewellery vintage box

Hi there! Its KL marathon day today. It's almost 5pm now and I guess the roads are clear now. Good time if you want to drive around in town. We didn't join in the marathon today but instead, we just finished watching a marathon of Harry Potter movies at home. All eight of them! I'm a big fan of Harry Potter! ( and managed to influence my son too! ) Always loved magic, wizards since the Dungeons and Dragons ( or maybe even before that!) Lol!

Today, I want to share with you a work on Kaisercraft tic tac toe box that was given to me to play with by Scrapbook Memories. Emm....and yeap, it's no longer a tic tac toe box! Lol! Here's how the box was like originally.

I have covered the top lid with a patterned paper by Pink Paislee and layered with Bo Bunny and another patterned paper, which has Alice In Wonderland prints on it. ( and of which I forgot who the manufacturer is)

I have painted the box in crimson red with Folk Art acrylic paint after applying the primer first. Faiz also helped in the painting, though his brush stroke was very damaging. Lol! Scary! After I have demonstrated the brushing technique ( based on my gut feeling ), he started to enjoy the process. Not bad.

On the bottom lid, I have glued the Alice in Wonderland prints onto the 'gaping' squares and leave some uncovered to insert the butterfly, crochet flower ( my Mom's magic! ) , the word sticker with book tag and the coiled beaded string around a love shaped felt sticker.

On the inner base of the box, I have layered the same paper with the Alice in Wonderland prints.

On the lid cover, I have also added a burlap, which is layered with the patterned papers, Kaisercraft flowers in pastel green and a string of pearls.

A gold metal box handle was screwed on the edge of the lid for ease of opening.

The box is now displayed at Scrapbook Memories for viewing. Most of the items I have used here can also be found at the shop or if not; you can pre-order and they will be glad to get it for you.

  1. That is a wonderful keepsake!. Love the deep red and Alice theme pattern papers. Inspired. Makes me want to play like Alice too :). I've got some Alice in Wonderland collage sheet (a gift from Nice Cranes Designs) recently. Yum!

    1. Thanks Shahrul! Can't wait to see your Alice creations...

  2. Very cool box! I love all the little bits and pieces that you collaged together--the result is so gorgeous.

    Wow--a marathon of all the Harry Potter movies! How many hours did that take? Well, it sounds fun, even though it would take a long time.

    1. Thanks Denise! We didn't actually watched everything non-stop. We paused for food, drinks and nature calls...hehe...
