Personalized Handmade Music Box

Welcome Club Scrap Hopes Kit Blog Hoppers!!!

This blog hop originates from the Club Scrap Creates Blog, click HERE if you want to start from the beginning and hop along. Here is the project I created for today with the Hopes Club Stamp Kit, Musical Hope Chest, personalized with my dear daughter's photo.

I'm a huge fan of being part of the creative process when designing the Club Stamp Projects. While this kit comes complete with printed paper for wrapping the handmade music box, I used the paperless Components Kit now available! My own photo (printed on copy paper using a laser printer) and old book pages worked well for covering the box. I'll let the pictures do the talkin'. There are handy detailed instructions included in the kit, so I don't want to be too redundant.

Trim a 5x7 laser printed photo. 
Use a photo to cover the box lid.
Wrap old book pages onto the box base.
Rub brown acrylic paint to color the box base.
Install the music box mechanism.
Add a little paint onto the lid so it coordinates with the base.
After adding the lid, attach hardware and wooden legs.
Next on the hop is Cathy at The Artful Gamut. Stop by to check out what she is up to with the Hopes Kit! Enjoy hopping along!

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day!
