Snowman Box (Crafty Creations Challenges #287)

Hi everyone :-D 

It´s time for a new challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges.

Our theme for this fortnight is #287 - Seeing Spots (use dots)

Our sponsor for this challenge is Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps, whit a great prize for one random winner: 3 digital images of winner's choice.

Snowman Box is my project for this challenge.

I decorated a small Kraft cardboard box with a lid I had in my stash for a couple of years, using our sponsor's image 'Chester da Snowman' digital stamp, designer paper scraps and Kraft paper from my stash. Kraft paper I used on my project is recycled.

How I made my box...
I cut out two circles and two stripes from brown dotted paper scraps (Crafters Companion Bebunni Christmas Designer Paper Pad). I distressed edges with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink Antique Linen and glued them on the box and lid with universal glue
Then I printed Robyn's Fetish 'Chester da Snowman' digital stamp on Kraft packaging paper (thick Kraft paper) and colored him with colored pencils and universal white pencil, fussy cut and glued him on the lid.
I wanted the box to look old, so I teared stripes from Kraft paper bag and glued them on corners of the box and lid. I did this in découpage technique, using fine brush and découpage glue and varnish. After adding first layer of découpage glue and varnish, I smeared whole box with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy. I coated whole box and lid (inside and outside) several times with découpage glue and varnish.
After the box and lid were dry, I glued three synthetic snowballs on the bottom of the box to create box legs.
