My name is Sharon Estes and I am a new member of the Helmar Design team for the next 6 months. This is my first post for Helmar. I am know as a steampunk style designer and this is the style I used to re-purpose this Kleenex box into a great storage box for all my Happy mail I get from all my great facebook artist. I can store them in my studio in this lovely box until I get around to hanging them for display.
Step 1. I cut the top off the kleenex box and gessoed. I used a stencil of gears with modeling paste. When it was dry I used my Mixed Media paints and painted this box.
Step 2. Now it is ready for all the embellishments. I used paper flowers and chipboard gears painted with the mixed media paints and steampunk washi tape to the top. When all this was dry I added the flowers and gears with Helmar Glue Products.
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots were used to attach each flower to one another to give it some depth and the little gear was added with the scrap dot to stand out of the center of the flower.
In the pictures below i used the Helmar Premium Craft Glue. I glued the back of the flower to attach the 3 gears.
Helmar Premium Craft Glue was used to glue the flowers, gears, and butterfly to the project.
This is my completed Happy Mail Storage Box.
