It was like Christmas came early when I opened up a box Martha Stewart Crafts for this review. Seriously, craft supplies make me super happy!
Right away I noticed the decoupage and I knew what I wanted to do. Decoupage can be so much fun…and there’s even one with glitter!
I was shocked to find out that Martha Stewart decoupage is dishwasher safe! I don’t really need to worry about that for this project, but the creative possibilities are endless!
I found the cutest little boxes the other day…they were cute, but plain. Well, they seemed to be begging for a little decoupage love.
I decided to create sweet little holiday gift boxes to share this Christmas.
Making these gift boxes was much quicker and easier than I thought it would be. The decoupage dried so fast and it didn’t leave any uneven messy looking areas like some craft supplies.
Supplies I used…
- Martha Stewart Decoupage – Matte
- Martha Stewart Decoupage – Glitter
- Martha Stewart Snowflake Doilies
- Martha Stewart Metallic Doilies
- Martha Stewart Holiday Decoupage Set
- Sponge Brush
These doilies and other Martha Stewart sets make it so easy. A holiday craft party with these would be fun, and making some with children would be easy peasy.
No scissors needed, no fancy equipment…it’s just plain creative goodness.
Create a snowflake gift box by choosing your snowflakes, then pop out the paper pieces you won’t be using, lay out your design, remove your snowflakes and prep the box with a thin layer of matte decoupage, arrange you snowflakes, let it dry and apply a second coat on the top.
The completed boxes have a nice finish and it seriously took less than 10 minutes!
I layered some of the paper pieces to create a design. Just follow the same steps as the first one, but add glitter decoupage for your final coat.
I have to stop right here and tell you that I LOVE the glitter decoupage! I see lots of glittery projects in my future. It’s such a light glitter look and it dried so even and smooth. If you only buy one new craft supply this holiday season…make it this one.
Here’s a close look at my Cardinal gift box. I used the matte decoupage for a super clean look.
I think I need to make a few more gift boxes to create little craft kits for my nieces…wouldn’t that be cute???
I hope this inspires you to try decoupage. It’s a super easy craft that’s very rewarding!
Have you tried any of Martha Stewart decoupage? I’d love to hear what you made! I’m on the hunt for lots of ideas!
