House Oddities Box to create a table-top (or mantle-top) decor piece that is also a storage box! The box measures 6 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" and comes with a chipboard door and seven (7) chipboard house shapes. (I am using the houses for another project.)
The box is the perfect size to store a candle, some gift tags, or even one of those creepy Elf on a Shelf dolls! I decorated with a gold, black, and red scheme, with lots of sparkle and bells!
Let's get started!
I used white ink to color a bird cage from the Ornamental Birdcages Shape Set. While the ink was wet I heat embossed the birdcage with shabby embossing enamel. I repeated the process, using white ink and white embossing powder on snowflakes from the Snowflake Shape Set and the Winter Shape Set.
I selected "two turtle doves" from the Birds Shape Set and colored them with gold pigment ink.
Wrap gold ribbon around the top and sides of the box, securing on the bottom. Create a large bow from the gold ribbon and glue the bow to the top of the box.
