Harry Potter Project

So here is the surprise project I made for my friend Rita J.'s
daughter, Anastasia.She loaned me the Harry Potter movies so
Vincent and I could watch them all together before the last
one was released. Vincent and I really enjoyed them. It was
 bitter-sweet to watch the last one though!
I wanted to return the movies in something special for
Anastasia because she  LOVES Harry Potter
something fierce!

I'm making another one of these boxes for
my niece, Carissa. Who in all honesty is the
absolute biggest Harry Potter fan I know!

I found this paper mache box at Hobby Lobby
and the knob.

This is the top/lid. The screw that came with it was
way too long. I found this out about 1030 at night and I
was super frustrated! A little trip to Ace Hardware
for a different size screw and I was back on track.

 Side A: I used a Tim Holtz die and an owl from
Stampin' Up I had in my stash.

Side B: I used the TH Christmas lamp post die sans the
holly,the TH Baroche and mini Baroche dies. The quote
I found on Pinterest.
(have i mentioned I'm slightly addicted?)

Side C: TH die key and keyhole. Run thru Cuttlebug
with an embossing folder. I painted it black. After it
dried, I lightly used a silver paint dauber to brush
over it.

Side D: I used the TH spooky tree and chipboard stickers.

I used Ranger's Muti-Matte medium to attatch TH
Foundations tothe box's bottom. Have you used
 this stuff?

The Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi-Medium – in Matte and Gloss finishes – is an art quality gel medium used for gluing, image transfers, sealing art, creating glazes and extending paints

It has become one of my favorite adhesives.
It is some strong stuff! Those feet aren't
coming off! To glue the paper to the box I
used this... I like it better than Mod Podge!
