The Chocolate Box
Original Tissue Decoupage Papers, Flexible & Sturdy with a Hand-Painted Look!!!
Each sheet is 8-1/2" x 11" with multiple laser printed images


Supplies Needed:
Most of these supplies can be purchased at you local craft, and stamp stores.

Paper Mache or Wood Box
Five wood knobs
Foil Glue
Gold Fine Foils
Purple Fine Foils
Stamps with words
Pigment ink pads for stamping and embossing
Decorative Scissors
Embossing Powder - Copper
Embossing Tool
Charms and Fibers
Water based gloss varnish
Liquid alcohol ink - brown

1) Lightly crumple the gold and purple foil in your hands.  Then gently smooth out.  Tear the crumpled fine foils in to small pieces, about the size of a quarter.

2)  Apply foil glue to the back of torn crumpled pieces and layer the pieces over your surface and each other in a collage effect, being careful not to get glue on the front of the foil.  Be sure to adhere the pieces to one another with more glue.  I use a stencil brush to pouch the pieces together.  I used purple foil for the knobs and gold foil for the box and lid.

3) Let dry.  Since foils are non porous they take time to dry.  If cold to the touch it is not dry.  Generally overnight is sufficient time.

4) Cut several larger pieces in purple and stamp with your stamp and ink pad.  Embossing while ink is still wet.  Cut with decorative scissors a border for the lid.  Apply these foils pieces on your box using glue. 

5) Use water based gloss varnish and apply to knobs, glue knobs to lids with a durable glue like E-6000.

6) Stain box - use water based Gloss Varnish and add a couple of drops of alcohol inks.  Mix well.  Use a soft brush apply to your foiled box, wipe off any excess with a cloth.  Let dry.  You may want to apply a second coat for a darker look.  Let dry.

7) Apply two coats of water based acrylic gloss varnish with a soft brush. 

8) Apply your charms and fibers.

Tips & Hints:

Don't apply varnish with a roller or sponge, it forms air bubbles.  Don't apply paint with a brush it can leave strokes.  Make sure your paints and sealers are dry, if it is cold to the touch it is not dry.  You can speed up the drying process by using a hair dryer on low heat about 6 inches from project.
