I bought a job lot of wooden items from ebay, it was an absolute bargain, I've got a whole range of boxes, plaques etc they all plain light coloured wood ready for altering. This is my first attempt at decorating one and I'm pretty pleased with the result. I did this for an 18th birthday gift and did a card to coordinate with it. The birthday girl is trying to save for a car so I did the box to put money in. Her birthday party had a Grease theme and I was presented with some beautiful flowers and a butterfly for my garden for doing the invites (see an earlier post if you missed them). The party was brilliant fun, I was dressed for the occasion with my net petticoats and a Pink Ladies jacket. I checked out a couple of Youtube tutorials on 50s make-up, I went for very strong eyes complete with arched pencilled brows and false lashes and red lips. My husband said "That makeups quite scary but I think you've achieved the look you were after".
