Add the paper to a small gift box, and then create a small gift tag using the same pattern…..This will be an Easter gift for my niece Abby ~ who just discovered coloring!  This box is the perfect size for her crayons! I will make sure to toss in a few yellow crayons….she loves yellow!

If you missed the post on how to adhere watercolor paper to a bentwood box click below

 bentwood boxes can be purchased thru, they carry beautifully finished wood!  They also carry many other supplies needed for the Arts.

If creating the box shown…be sure to add the paper prior to painting and penciling (only to the top).  I added the chalkboard lines all around the lid and outside, running my white pencil along all edges and including a small alphabet to the bottom.

and if you know me….you know I love to line the inside of a painted bentwood box with scrapbooking paper (and hope to add a blogpost soon about it)…..which paper do you think I will choose from the above choices?

Each one has its own charm…..

join me in the FaceBook Group ‘Painting with Amy Joanne at the Clubhouse’ to see which paper I have chosen….click here to join us.

    Hi Amy, Really enjoyed your video/ pattern on the vintage duck! It is so cute! Thank you so much! I have been wanting to try colored pencils for sometime now. I have a question about sharpeners and as to which is the best for Prisma color pencils. Can you make a recommendation? Thank you again so much!

    1. Hi! Thank you so much and enjoy creating the pattern! The electric sharpener I use is a Bostich and the hand held is just a small cheap school house metal sharpener…..if you watch my facebook page this week I will post a quick 1 minute video on the sharpeners! Enjoy!
