Treasure your Love

This Love treasure chest is a great place to keep those lovely nothings, and you will be sure that your sweetheart would always use this to store those little love-filled gifts in them.

Love Chest

Tip: Roll out the modelling meterial for the base and sides of the chest to about 5mm in thickness. If the meterial is rolled too thinly, the sides of the chest may collapse.

Materials Needed:

  • Modelling Tool
  • Tall thick Glass
  • White drying meterial
  • Paintbrush
  • PVA Glue
  • Acrylic Paints
  • Chopping board Ruler

Instructions:

Roll out the meterial. Cut out two sides and a base each 6cmX4cm (2.5in X 1.5in), and two more sides each 4cm X 4cm (1.5in X 1.5in). Cut a strip 8cm (3in) long for the lid strap.
