Holiday Fund ~ Money Box
Hi Guys, Laura back today to share a money box made using an old dominoes box and the By The Sea ribbons.
First off I whittled a coin sized hole in the wood. It was easy enough to do with a craft knife as the wood was very soft. To prepare my wooden box to accept paint I used a watercolour ground. Once that was dry I played around with some turquoise and brown watercolour paints, flicking and splattering until my desk was messy and my heart was happy!
I added some of the lighthouse ribbon to either side and wrapped some seaside ribbon around the box. I added some hand lettering to the front and a few sequins for extra sparkle.
It's easy to get the money out as the front panel slides out. I wonder if it will help with my savings..?
Thanks for stopping by!
