#CraftyCreatives Box13

5 Aug

July was Crafty Creatives Birthday Box 13.

The Birthday Box reflected the floral theme of the 1st ever Crafty Creatives Box.

There were 5 Flower Making Kits in the box amongst a few extra treats.

And a Balloon to celebrate.

I am yet to attempt the flower kits but what I have made use of is the Balloon.

I’ve been wanting to paper mâché a bowl for a while and the balloon was just the excuse needed. (I don’t know why it’s just one of those Pinterest induced oooo I haven’t done that in ages craft moments)

So Balloon ready – Newspaper cut

Suitable PVA style glue & water mixture made, with fingers crossed it was sticky enough.
I covered the balloon in cling film to make it easy to remove from the balloon, instead it just stuck to the cling film – a slight faux pa – it came loose easily enough though.

Then mucky’ness commenced…

I added a few layers off news paper leaving to dry well in between each to avoid a moulding wet mess.
Then top coated with a plain packing paper I had saved.

I then chopped it to size leaving it a bit wonky for an original feel.

Gave it a paint in an acrylic teal on the outside (It actually was darker than I expected) and an acrylic gold inside.

After a couple of coats of each…

It was then sealed with a glossy decoupage glue I had a hand.

And there you have it one paper mâché bowl.

Hopefully in the next week I will get to attempt some of the flowers from Box 13.
