This inspired me to make my own special prayer box. I'd been wanting to try stamping on tissue paper which is the Craft Stamper Take It Make It challenge for September and this was just the project for it:
I used two 12 x 12 sheets of white card, trimming about 2 inches off each sheet and scoring each side using my amazing Hougie Board which makes jobs like this so easy because you don't have to measure. Here is a picture of the Hougie Board for those of you who have never come across one or something similar. It has inches on one side and centimetres on the other.
Then I stamped tissue paper all over and glued onto the cardstock with matt medium. I sponged with distress inks and sprayed with pearl Cosmic Shimmer. This gave a really lovely sheen. Then I made up the box.
I love the texture the tissue paper adds:
I added encouraging scriptures on each side:
Penny said it was wonderfully encouraging to go through her prayer box from time to time and find the answered prayers. I know I'm going to use mine a lot!
