|Decoupaged tool kit for the geek in your life (or your DIY drawer)|
|This was inexpensive, but doesn't look too cheap (although the plastic case was a dead giveaway, hence the decoration)|
|Front and back prepared in exactly the same way - just change the positioning of the decorations|
As it's plastic, it's rather slick and not good for gluing, so sand a little first, just enough to roughen the surface (use an emery board if you don't have sandpaper).
- Couldn't be simpler: leftovers of scrapbooking paper for the front and the back, cut to size.
- Collage the ticket on first, then overstamped some text (using Staz-On ink).
- The dots were Punchinella (sequin waste) used as a stencil, stippled with acrylic paint. Move the stencil and stipple again, creating a drop shadow using a metallic paint.
- Finally, decoupage a vintage scrap image of a clown's head.
Next step: glue to the tool kit using a good quality strong glue such as Crafter's, Gorilla, Aleene's Tacky Glue or use double-sided tape. You don't want this peeling off at a later date.
Finishing touches: I ran a metallic gold pen round the edges, then applied a single coat of clear acrylic varnish for protection.
Very fast - took around 2 hours including coffee and biscuits, and drying time!
