Nice to See You Project

 WOODEN TRINKET BOX



Hi and welcome to my Blog today!  Today I am making a wooden trinket box with clay tiles.  Ok when I say today - today is the post, this actually took a number of days with the various steps that required drying...


Supply list:
1/8th x 4in x 36in Balsa wood (from craft store)
Acrylic paints
Gesso paint
Liquid pearls
Wood glue
Clay (I used air dry clay)
Beaded Trim/Fringe
Wooden spools/balls (for legs of box)
Ink pads
Rubberstamps
Removable painter's tape (for masking)
Paint brushes
Sand paper or block
Xacto knife
hot glue gun

Instructions:
Cut (4) pieces from the balsa wood that are 4x4 (2 sides, top, bottom), cut (2) 3 3/4x4 (other 2 sides) using Xacto knife to cut.  Balsa wood is very soft and cuts quite easily with the Xacto knife and a straight edge of a ruler.  Sand edges to make smooth.

Paint wood pieces with gesso.  Let dry.
Using removable painter's tape and mask off an area where you would like your stamped images to be placed, repeat process on all 4 box sides:
 Remove tape:
Take clay and roll out to about 1/8th inch thick.  Cut into various shapes that will cover the 4x4 wooden lid.  Using rubber stamps, stamp into some of the clay pieces.  Let these pieces dry according to clay instructions.
 While clay is drying, we will glue the box together.  Use wood glue - it will work the best.  This may take some patience and time to get it all done.
 Once your box is together and dry.  Paint the stamped area with yellow acrylic paint. Let dry.
 Paint the rest of the area metallic purple, and any other colors as you see fit.  You can also paint the lid and bottom of the box.  Let dry.
 While box is drying and now that clay is dry, start painting the clay pieces and spools/balls.  Let dry in between different colors.
 After the feet parts are painted, using the wood glue, glue the balls to the spools.  Let dry.
Adhere the spools/balls to the bottom of the box.
 Adhere the clay pieces to the lid using hot glue gun.

 Using liquid pearls - add decorative spots as desired.  I added some to lid and sides of box along with the feet.
I used black ink and rubberstamps to add a few additional stamped images to the tiles on the lid.
Add some beaded trim to the bottom edge of the box just for a final touch. and vola you have a great little trinket box to hold whatever you'd like.
