flower natural gift box

Embellish a simple wood box with a stunning metal flower bead. What a great addition to a handmade gift!
Step 1

First, add painter’s tape to your wood box around the area(s) you want to paint.

Step 2

Brush liquid gilding onto the wood surface inside the taped off area(s). Set aside to dry.
TIP: An additional coat may be needed for coverage, then let dry. Clean your paintbrush with turpentine.

Step 3

Cut two pieces from a foam rod to fit inside the box.

Step 4

Cut a piece of felt to 3"x9" and place the two cut foam pieces parallel to each other in the center.

Step 5

Wrap the felt from each side over the rods, tuck the ends in between them and add glue to secure to make the box insert.

Step 6

Push the felt-covered insert inside the box. It should fit snug.

Step 7

Cut the connector ends off a metal flower bead with you flush cutters. Smooth the metal with an emery board.

Step 8
Attach for the metal flower to the center of the front rim of the lid with E6000® glue. Let dry.
TIP: Use a piece of painter’s tape to hold the flower in place while it dries, then carefully remove the tape.
