Popped Out Boxes

(Click on image for a closer look)

I never tire of decorating wood boxes. Recently, I was making some for a wholesale account and decided to try something different than the usual flat decoupage style.


Crafty Chica Paints
Crafty Chica Glitters
Crafty Chica Loteria or Inspiration Cards

Wood boxes, paint brushes
High gloss varnish
Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue

I painted the boxes as usual, and then coated the tops with my Crafty Chica Glitters. I then glued the main image on top. In some cases, I cut out a portion of the picture, glued down the background and used cardboard to the back of the cut out piece, so it popped out. I then coated it all in high gloss varnish. They look so juicy and shiny! And now they are for sale at The Phoenix Art Museum too!

Peace, love, and glitter!
Kathy 🙂
