Miniature boxes

These boxes are so tiny! Only one inch! They contained microscope glass, but I had no use of that, so I decided to alter them. First I painted them with black acrylic paint, then added crackle medium, and then some off-white paint. After that I embellished them with puff paint, a heart, a flower, and a butterfly. And some bling, of course. I also painted them with shimmery finish, but my camera is not that good to show that.

Every box is different on the inside also. Here is the one with the butterfly on top:

And here is the inside:

A tiny scroll has a secret message inside. πŸ™‚

And here is the one with the flower on it:

You can’t see it very well, but the heart is red, a little bit distressed with brown ink. On the inside of the lid there is a piece of vintage paper, blank, perfect for a love note.

The last one is a “Quote box”:

It says: “The highest form of art is the art that inspires the heart.”

I hope you like them. Have a great day! πŸ™‚

  1. Thes a so sweet – I love making origami boxes and giving them as gifts with little messages inside them — I have not made any in a while so you are inspiring me to get out the materials again and do it as a fall project — people love receiving them too
