Altered Wood Box for Valentine’s Day

Hobby Lobby and Michael’s have great unfinished wood jewelry chests, frames, and other miscellaneous wood projects that are inexpensive.  They are just waiting for your unique decorative touch! I like this box in that it has the glass top showing the top compartments along with a lower slide-out drawer.  I painted it with gesso and then covered it in velvety Anna Griffin paper. The lovely lattice Prima stamp used on the drawer floor looks great with pearls or rhinestones at each corner.

Folded ZigZag Card with Cutting File

I’ve made several of these zigzag cards in the past, and want to share the WPC cutting file for this card style.  The cutting file also includes presized decorative paper strips for the card panels that are sized for a regular Martha Stewart edge punch.  For this particular card however, I used a “deep-edge” punch so had to shorten the lengths of the decorative paper strips.  For those of you that do not have a WPC cutting machine, the manual tutorial can be found here.
