Small wooden gift box






Stamps used:

So hows everyone doing? Thank you for stopping by, Mark here and today I am sharing a little gift box, something that could be used with Xmas coming up.This would have been something I would love to have made for my dad but sadly he passed a few years ago before I got into crafting.
The little box is the ideal size for something like cuff links and was painted with Decoart paints, I have used their Weathered Wood product to get the cracks.
The finish has been antiqued using more paint.
I added the Tim Holts tab and used some distress inks to colour the paper.
The image of the vintage Fireman was stamped with black archival ink, I think its a great image to use for a Father as they are hero's in their kids eyes.

Thank you all for stopping by. Remember to stop by tomorrow if you can to see something new from one of our DT.

A lovely box and very manly Mark, which is good, as often it is not easy to think of things to do for men.

Very cool - the ageing looks just brilliant, both the crackle and the dark shading. Great choice of image, and I love the little drawer pull label. I agree with Croms' Cubby Hole above - make it a present for yourself!
