Mini Box for Treasures

Well, this was truly a challenge! It turned out exactly as I envisioned, but OY! what a ride.  This little round trinket box is 2" high, and 2" wide.  Perfect for your purse or to use as a colorful fun decor item.  The process was long and tedious with lots of reworking, redoing, and rethinking.  I learned a lot, so hopefully next time will be lot smoother.

The beginning: Surface painted with Golden Gold acrylic paint.

Other colors come from Luminere Metalics, alcohol inks, Inka Gold, and chalk ink stamps.  The ginkgo leaf stamp is from Creative Journey Studios in Buford, GA. And more views: 

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Wow! Betsy, this is so cool. I'd love to know the way you got the clasp to stay on the polymer.

    1. Thanks so much Line. It was difficult! I have some ideas to improve the process so still working it through.

  2. The surface treatment is just yummy, and the fit to the clasp frame is perfectly done! So lovely, Betsy!

  3. Thank you so very much Beth, your kind words and support always mean a lot!
