Project Instructions

Step 1 Paint outside of shadow box with Distress Paint and let dry.

Step 2 Sand edges with sandpaper, apply Distress Stain, and wipe away excess.

Step 3 Apply Glue n’ Seal to inside of box, cover with wrinkled Tissue Wrap and let dry.

Step 4 Cut various shapes of Metal Foil tape with non-stick Scissors.

Step 5 Remove backing from foil tape and adhere to the front and sides of a paper mache heart overlapping the edges of the tape.

Step 6 Pierce holes along edges of the foil tape using a Craft Pick to create “rivets”.

Step 7 Ink over foil tape using black Alcohol Ink with Ink Applicator Tool and let dry.

Step 8 Rub steel wool over inked tape to remove the color from the top layer and reveal the antiqued silver foil tape.

Step 9 For “stitches” cut short pieces of thin wire, bend in a “U” shape, and insert ends through pierced holes. If you insert into opposite holes you can create a stitched “X” design - no adhesive is needed.

Step 10 Adhere heart into the box using Glossy Accents and let dry.

Step 11 Adhere various findings to heart and box with Glossy Accents and let dry.

Step 12 Insert fasteners through pierced holes as needed.

Step 13 Create hole in side of box and secure Clock Key.
