Dollar Find Friday (Maki- Tea box)

I am so excited to share this tutorial with you! Maki created a gorgeous project with the new Tea For Two set and I love it!

I went to Dollar Tree and found the wooden box as shown bellow. It was calling me to alter, lol. I hope you will like my altered tea box.

wooden box
acrylic paints
designer paper
strong adhesive like sticky tape or glue dots
screw driver
die cuts, ribbons, copic markers (optional)
1. Disassemble the all hardware and set them aside.Paint the wooden box with the acrylic paints. You probably have to paint a few times.
2. After the paint are dry, adhere the designer paper to the back of the lid.The sticky tape works very well
3. Stamp the images and color them if you like.(I used Brilliance ink and Copic markers.)

4. This is how I decorated the lid.

What a great project I love that the box was left in the natural wood state. This would make such a wonderful gift for just about anyone.
