How To Decor Wooden Box With Scrapbooking Paper

I love giving my loved ones gifts. A few years ago I was fascinated by the art of decoupage and scrapbooking. These are simple techniques by which we can transform ordinary wooden or glass items into something extraordinary. I would like to show you how it looks in short. I invite you to a short tutorial “Step by step” How To Decor And DIY Wooden Box With Scrapbooking Paper

Step 1

In this project, I used a lockable wooden box size 15 x 15 x 6,5 cm. The first step is to thoroughly sand the box with sandpaper. The box can not have any scratches or bumps. After this step, we can move on.

Step 2

After smoothing all the sharp edges of the wooden box we can start to paint water based stain (LASUR). After painting we wait a moment to dry well. TIP: We can accelerate drying using them!

Step 3

After the help and careful drying of the box cut out the appropriate items from scrapbooking paper. I cut a square of 15 x 15 cm, which will be glued on the lid of the box and two elements of size 4.5 x 15 cm, which will be glued on the sides of the box. I used glue hobby glue but you can use other in decoupage!

Step 4

After gluing the paper I decided to add the effect of the box’s aging. I simply did this with classic crakle step 1 and step 2 (available in most handicraft shops). First apply step 1 and dry (if you do not want to wait you can always help yourself with a dryer). After drying we apply the next step – Step 2. We again shake and almost ready.

Suggested materials:

  • Wooden Box (15 x 15 x 6,5 cm)
  • Water Based Stain LASUR
  • Metalic WAX PASTE
  • Classic crackle varnish (Step 1)
  • Classic crackle varnish (Step 2)
  • Scrapbook paper (Roses & Laces)
  • Hobby Glue

After drying and applying the cracking preparations, we are left with only a metallic paste, which will reveal the cracks. In addition, I put a small wooden ornament on the front, but it depends on what we want to get in our project.
