Mommy & Me Treasure Boxes

Every child needs a box to keep their treasures in! Our designer made two examples with her children. One had a purple and pink accessories theme and the other has a focus on fairies. Both were made from inexpensive boxes purchased at a local craft store.
Step one: Place your box upside down on top of the Terrifically Tacky Tape and trace around it. Cut sheet to fit your box with non-stick scissors. Place the tape on the box top and peel the paper back to expose the adhesive.
Step two: Place your Swarovski flatbacks in a pattern that is appealing to you along the top of the box. Add your charms. For extra hold, you can use Gem Tac adhesive if you like.
Step Three: Sprinkle the seed beads all over your creation. If you are layering colors, go sparingly and fill in as you go so that some of each of the colors stick. Press the beads gently into the tape with your fingers. For added color, you can sprinkle glitter over the entire design when you are done. We did this with the purple box to demonstrate the outcome. Glitter can be found in your local craft store. This can be made using any charms, flatbacks and seed beads, however we do recommend our pewter charms as they are less likely to tarnish.
