Wooden Pencil Box

Hello friends!

Today I have 3 posts to share with you. The first is quick and inexpensive home decor item that will make a nice little gift. I decorated this wooden pencil box with paper crafting supplies and some sealer coat.
Wooden Pencil Box (before sealer)

This started as a plain unfinished box I picked up at a dollar store. I dyed the lid and sides with milled lavender distress stain. I then randomly stamped butterflies all over the top with lilac distress ink. Next I added some picket white distress stain, this caused the butterflies to blur leaving only bits of colour. I'm okay with the result so I didn't re-stamp the butterflies. After lid dried I stamped the Quietfire Design I write you letters quote and design elements stamps in Timber Brown Staz On ink. I covered the entire lid with some crackle paste when this was completely dry I added some vintage photo distress ink to all corners and lightly across lid to further distress.

I like that the stamping looks a bit like wood-burning but so much easier. :)

Be back in a bit with a fun Valentine project.

Keeping it crafty,
