Quick little gifts

Here is a quick project I did as a gift for a friend who recently had surgery. I wanted to cheer her up, and let her know I was thinking of her. It only took me an hour to complete the box and cross from start to finish.
Ten Second Studios recently come out with a line of paint and patinas that are just AMAZING!! I have been dying to try them out.I covered one of those plain jane jewelry boxes that you can get at the Dollar Tree. They come in a package of three or four for a dollar. The sides of the box are covered in a 7 Gypsies tape and I used scrap copper I had laying around, made by Ten Second Studio, on the top of the box. After getting it all assembled, I sprayed the top of the box and flower with the TSS copper patina. Then I let it sit overnight, and the next morning it had these elegant shades of greens & teal. Then, I soldered this fun little cross necklace to fill the box. The cross is also a class I am teaching in April at The Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie, Texas.


  1. Beautiful gift! Love your gorgeous flower and cross, both are stunning!

  3. Hi, what is the name of the sprays you use to make the patina on the flower?
