How to Create a Vintage Style Mixed Media Keepsake Box-Using the August Mixed Media kit from Frog Dog Studio

Good morning! Today I have a quick, easy, and fun project using our August kit items. I will show you how to make a vintage style mixed media keepsake box. (This tutorial can also be found on the Frog Dog Studio Blog)

I started out with a .99 little box from Hobby Lobby and painted it with magenta acrylic paint. Then I fussy cut out the vintage girl from the clip art sheet and adhered her to the lid.

In the next step, I added some of the iridescent Inka Gold to the rose in her hand and in her hair. Then, I went over the whole box and around the image with the Viva Glitter Paste to add some shimmer and shine 🙂

To complete the box, I added some blue bling trim around the edge of the lid that I had in my stash. I also added the little butterfly wings from the clip art to her back. Then I finished it off with a cute quote.

The finished product:

Thanks for stopping by!
