I have had these for a long time; I was going to do something with them but never did.
That is the opening to this post http://mariesegal.blogspot.com/2010/09/from-plain-to-fabulous.html
where I briefly tell how to make the heart boxes and turn them into gifts, storage, or wish boxes (God boxes).
I thought it would be nice to have a step by step to follow. So I made and photographed the step by steps for you to see how I did it.
You will need:
Paper mache heart boxes
Crafter’s pick “Ultimate” glue
Pearl-ex pigments I used sparkle gold, brilliant gold, spring green, silver and rose gold
Lumiere paint in True gold
Flower/leaves cutter set
Plastic Handle Scalpel-SCP
Clay Slicing Blade SB
small piece of copper screen
Plumeria Border Rubber Stamp from Rubber Stamp Plantation
Condition the black Cernit until it is smooth and pliable. Cernit works best when conditioned by hand. Flattened with the fingers or pancaked and then run through the clay machine.
Roll the flattened Cernit through the thickest setting on the clay machine.
Take the top of the heart box and place it on top of the rolled out Cernit. Trace around the top with the scalpel to cut out a heart.
